Hoya polyneura is often called The fishtail Hoya due to the shape of the leaves and the pattern of the nerves. This variety has very silvery leaves. The solid green clone is more common in trade.

To me Hoya polyneura is a very slow grower. The featured plant is two years old and grows in a selfwatering pot in a window facing west where it gets filtered light.

The buds take quite some time to open up. One of the flowers fell off before it was completely opened, on others the corona turned a bit dry. This was it's first flowering so with more practice it might become better at it.
