Unknown species with lovely flowers and very nice leaves. I bought a cutting after seeing a photo of lovely, pink flowers, but what I recieved was something different. According to the GPS/IPPS numbers this should be the typ speciesHoya brevilata, but looking at the flowers it is quite obvious this species is not even in the Acanthostemma section.

Leaves are mediumsized, turn red in sunlight and are almost round. The biggest is approx 7x5cm and the smallest 5x4cm. Venetion is very clear. Similar to Hoya kastbergii but not as fleshy. Easily cultivated plant that tolerates to run slightly dry.
