I recieved this one in a round-Robin called RAK (Random Act of Kindness). The participants recieved a name and address to a person they were to send a cutting to. As I didn't have this species in my collection it was an apropriate gift for me.

I did eventually figure out who my secret "friend" was and got some information about the origin of the species which I recieved as Hoya minahassae. Unfortunately I was unable to get any collection data from it's original sourse in Sweden so I don't know if this is either GPS 8816 or 8875, which are the two clones in circulation as Hoya minahassae. However, since recent research has shown that neither is in fact Hoya minahassae I've decided to reduce it to an "sp. aff." such.

The photo of the flowers is not from my plant.
