This particular clone of Hoya finlaysonii has actually been in my collection before. Once, during the late 90-ties, I decided to stop collecting Hoyas and sold off most of my collection. I never kept a list of the species I had, nor who I sold them to.

A couple of years later I changed my mind and resumed my collecting. I bought cuttings of a number of species from a couple in the South of Sweden. During one of many hoya-discussions one of them mentioned that they had bought exactly this Hoya finlaysonii from me during my clearence. It was the only clone they had so there was no chance of mix up. Small world.

If this clone of Hoya finlaysonii was free flowering 10 years ago I unfortunately can't remember but the second time around it took a few years before it showed any blooms, but once it did three umbels turned up.
