This fairly new species comes from Sabah on the Malaysian side of Borneo. Was first collected by Tony Lamb and published by T. Green in Fraterna 2001. Hoya klobbenburgii was named after Dale Kloppenburg, a long time collector who has published a number of species himself.

For me Hoya klobbenburgii does well in a window facing west. I grow it in a self watering pot.

As both the leaves and branches are very stiff it's a fair guess they break easily if bent. It probably does best in a hanging basket but trellises are probably fine if one is careful. Flowers are apricot colored, quite unique, and without scent.
