The summer of 2002 I received a small cutting labelled sp. New Guinea White. That it was not a question of Hoya magnifica was clear from the start as this Hoya had glabrous leaves, almost polished, and stems. After it bloomed it was identified as Hoya australis ssp. tenuipes.

The leaves are large and oval. Approx. 5x3,5" in size. The veins are clearly visible, sometimes slightly yellow. The plant i self is quite robust and it is a slow grower, at least for me, and does not climb well.

Flowers typical australis though slightly more greenish yellow in color than type. Nicely scented.

This one likes light but should be protected from the mid day sun as It will burn the leaves. Can be allowed to dry some but prefers to be kept slightly moist.
