Bought as Hoya pottsii SV 401 but I'm unsure if it is correctly identified. The leaves don't have the same nerve structure as the other "pottsies" I grow. Very similar to the Hoya samoensis types.

Most Hoya pottsii I've encountered have a nice, sweet scent but these are rather plain. Not much of a scent to speak of.

Hoya pottsii is actually a climbing plant that should do best on a trellis, but if one is short of ground parking... a hanging basket will do for most hoyas...

Collection number SV-401
