If this really is Hoya chuniana is a matter of discussion and depends on how one interprits the publication and holotye. It is however sold as Hoya chuniana and I recieved it as such. It also goes by the name Hoya PNG-6.

It was originally published as Hoya chunii but the name was later changed according to the rules of nomenclature. The species was not collected by Karl Chun but named in his honor. The name replaced the previous publication of Hoya reticulata Moon.

The leaves vary in size. The largest leaf on my plant is approx 15x12 cm and the smalles 7x5cm. They are lancett shaped, light green with obvious venetion.
