THE TITLE SHOULD READ: Hoya campanulata

This cutting came to me in really bad shape but it survived and now is a gorgeous plant with many blooming peduncles. I have been researching and searching for the ID but and still unsure as to what it is. I am choosing to not reveal it's origin or the label it came with...hoping this will promote an unbiased opinion. I know this family has much controversy nut hope with the detailed photos it will be obvious to someone.
Thanks in advance for your time and help!!!! I tip my hat to you. Ears perked up!

I think it's H. danumensis. Why don't you ask Ted Green?

The only 'fact' I know is that H. danumensis has the bumps on the underside...sure fire way to tell if it is danumensis. Ted wrote a discussion of the 3 Hoyas in the last FRATERNA, I believe.

Hope this helps.

Good to know info Carol.I picked my hoya up from a thai seller at jj market my last visit to Bangkok.It came with a tag with a name.The last couple of times I have been to this market I have gotten hoyas from this seller,he is the only one with name tags and prices to match(on the high side).
Your plant looks very healthy Joni,I have this one to.But no flowers yet.

Cindy,
Thanks for the photos and history of your H. campanulata...any chance you have any additional photos of the blooms themselves like maybe to back where the infamous 'bumps' are to be visible?

Carol,
Are the bumps you are referring to what I have pictured in the photos above?

Mr. Green and I have ended our social and business relationship but I have sent an email to Christine Burton asking for her input on this ID. I will be happy to post any opinions I receive....If any?

Regardless...it is a great plant and the blooms are spectacular but I would like to have a correct label since I am offering the cuttings to my customers.

Yes, Joni...those bumps determine it is H. danumensis. Sent the photo to TG and he concurs (sent it as my photo). So...it seems that H. danumensis was running around for years as H. campanulata...and now that it is determined to be H. danumensis...not too sure which is H. campanulata....

.....and so it goes..... Whistling

Thanks so much Carol!!!
Now I only wonder what the plant I received as Hoya danumensis actually is. I grow it right next to this one and it acts completely opposite. When I brought it inside for the winter one lost all of it's leaves and the other one grew and gave me lots of blooms. Go figger. Group hug

This plant hasn't bloomed yet but it was labeled as Hoya danumensis. Do the bumps on mine suggest it was correctly labeled. Crossing my fingers...... Thumb of 2014-07-06/Alchemist9/03a395
