Text Care Details Facts  none  none

A form of Hoya pottsii, maybe from Australia. Some claim that the true Hoya ridleyi is a form of Hoya verticillata. If that is the case then I'm sure this one was mislabelled. It has many of the carachteristics featured in Hoya pottsii but none from Hoya verticillata.
