To me a fairly unknown species. It is not clear if it is Hoya nervosa, thus the aff that was added by the seller in Australia.

Hoya sp. aff. nervosa is a slow grower for me. It twines and has a wide space between the nodes. The leaves are quite large, but I suspect they can get much larger if the available space allows it, heart shaped and green as grass.

I grow Hoya sp. aff. nervosa in a window facin north. It prefers cool and shade. It's planted in a self watering pot and I let the soil dry some before filling up the container. So far it seems to agree with the treatment.

Flowers are white, sometimes with a touch of pink. The faint scent is not very pleasant.
