Another Hoya I've been waiting for a long time to get. This is the true Hoya griffithii, not the mislabelled one that has been in cirkulation as such for many years.

Hoya griffithii originates from the cool mountain areas of the Himalaya region where it grows at approx 800m altitude.

Leaves are sturdy, approx 15 cm long and 4 cm wide. Dark green and sparsly flecked.

The flowers are large, cream white and has a spicy, cinnamom like scent... or Hyacith depending on your nose...
