Another subspecies of Hoya australis. Very much like Hoya pubescens but the leaves are glabrous on top and only slightly pubescent on the back side. Tolerates to run dry for longer periods as the leaves retain water very well.

I recieved this one as Hoya australis subsp. rupicola. It did not take long to realize that the plant did not fit the description saying it should be a sturdy non-twiner, which is just about the opposite to this species.
