Hello. I'm new here. I've been growing h. kerrii and h. kerrii albomarginata for 9 years with great success.
I've recently had the opportunity to purchase several unusual hoyas from a local nursery that sells some more rare and unusual species of plants.
These hoyas may not be very rare or unusual to some of you. They're just unusual to me and not being the standard carnosa, kerrii, or publicalyx that you see in most Home Depot's or Lowes garden centers.
The first hoya pictured has quadrupled in size in the last 2 months. Unfortunately, none of the three hoyas pictured have bloomed.
Any help with identifying would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

It's all about choices.
OK...this is JUST a guess because leaves can be deceptive;

Top one is one of the verticillata bunch = acuta, verticillata, parasitica etc.
Middle one with the tri-nerves looks like H. rigida.
Bottom one looks like H. subtuquintuplinervis. Are the leaves quite thick? This one likes LOTs of light and heat. It could also be H. australis.

I reserve the right to be wrong Rolling my eyes. Only flowers will tell.
Leap. The net will appear.

Thanks for the help!!! I kind of thought that the first one was from the verticillata group.
I've seen pics. of several on the internet and it resembles several. A close friend of mine thought the last one was h. fungii, but I wasn't to sure.
The bottom one grows directly towards the light, like it's reaching for full sun. The older leaves at the bottom are thick and splashed with silver dots.

Last one definitely NOT fungii (which has a slight pattern in the leaves...is 'horsier')....as I said..it's the flowers!!!

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
