It's all about choices.
So often leaves are shown in a picture asking for identification....very difficult to do. Some leaves are unmistaken, like H. callistophylla.

The BASE of the leaf, where the petiole meets the leaf, is one of the key points to look at...how does it compare to what you are trying to match? Well...often the bases seem very similar...but look around the plant....is there one leaf that is really WAY out there? Does it seem to be a normal leaf, are there more than just one or two leaves that are out of the normal range?

Here are two leaves from the same small cutting...There are only 6 leaves, and the larger one is not the newest one... So...I am disregarding it, and going with the majority!!!

I am not sure but I really like it. Is this yours Hetty? Maybe a publicalyx variety?

How about picture of the leaves?

H. pubicalyx cultivars are almost impossible to pin down now, Hetty...they have mutated, morphed, cross pollinated ad nauseum...and the best call would be H. pubicalyx cultivar.... Whistling

I really like it. It was given to me by a friend.

My best guess is still a pubicalyx cultivar? Bright One?...maybe but the corona on Bright One is also kinda pink....

Bubbles...it looks to me like H. kerrii. Yes, a lovely hoya....called the Sweetheart Hoya because of the heart shaped leaves. Likes to grow dryish...lots of light and warmth. Yours is beautiful!!!

Thanks Carol for ID! The nursery I bought it from hardly ever IDs anything. I didn't know they didn't like water. I better join this Cubit so I can keep up with my other orphans that have quit blooming...

So much for using leaves for ID. Here are two leaves from the SAME plant:Thumb of 2012-08-02/AlohaHoya/b81c80

I have been collecting, studying and selling hoyas for about 10 years. This Cubit is about growing hoyas, and about the hoyas I have to sell. I welcome any and all hoya lovers, whether you want to buy or not. Hooked on Hoyas is another great Hoya sight
