A strong and fast grower with thick pachyclada-like leaves. The flowers also remind me of pachyclada but with a red center. An early bloomer for me and fragrant. It is such a great grower and bloomer, I had to propagate it, but what the heck is it? Does anyone know? Scroll down for more of the story.

Ships in 4″ pot. Photo #2 ONLY, is an example on size plant for sale. May have a few blemishes.

Description

I originally purchased this Hoya as a hybrid called Hoya ‘Sunshine’. I didn’t really know much about it so didn’t notice anything weird when I received it. Once it bloomed, I thought it was strange because I was under the impression that the flowers would be more mindorensis-like.
I reached out to the seller but they didn’t know what it was. I tried asking around the Hoya world and no one seems to know what it is or just throwing out guesses. It seems similar to Hoya ‘Christine’ but the leaves seem to be a bit different. My other ‘Christine’ has not bloomed yet to make comparisons or to confirm ID. I would assume it has to be different since this one blooms early for me. The original seller said it is definitely not Christine. So confusing!

Whatever it is, it grows so nicely and strong! The leaves are nice and typically not too many imperfections. It was an early bloomer and the flowers are super cute. They look like H. pachyclada with a red center. It is a good bloomer and they are fragrant at night.
