When Hoya sp. HSI-037 started circulating as Hoya pubicalyx 'Leenie' I knew I had to find the right one. I already had the first in my collection, but I wanted the real 'Leenie' too. Finding it in Sweden would be impossible as nobody would know if they had the misidentified plant or the real deal, so I had to look abroad. Finally I found it and since the plant comes from the original source I'm pretty sure I hit the jackpot... Now I just need to make it survive, grow and preferably bloom.

Hoya pubicalyx 'Leenie' was named after Eileen Broton, the wife of an avid, american hoya collector. The name was published int The Hoyan some time during the 90-ties but I have been unable to find the exact volume. The leaves are a bit smaller than on my other Hoya pubicalyx and are almost completely without flecks or spots - but that might change once the plant grows mature.
