Hoya excavata is very similar to Hoya diversifolia whom it's also a close relative to. The flowers are, however, not as scented.

Like it's sibling Hoya excavata has very thick and fleshy leaves and a generally very robust growht habit. With time it will be a quite sturdy plant and some may find it difficult to accomodate. If grown on trellises the brances will need to be taimed on an early stage as they break easily.
