There was a hoya that I don't have any longer, but want it back...

It's hard to describe but it had burgundy cupped leaves When I say cupped, something like brevialata but longer and not quite as cupped. The leaves hung down in a row.

That description sounds wild, I know. It couldn't have been too exotic because at the time, I didn't have a lot of exotic plants.

I hope someone can make sense out of this.

Thanks, Susan

It's all about choices.
The color would be from a lot of UV light... description is really vague...'hung down in a row?". Was it long and narrow like kentiana? Can you find a picture...maybe on Christinas' website
Leap. The net will appear.

No I haven't seen It anywhere. All I can describe is slightly cupped like brevialata but not quite as round. Not the widest leaf but definitely not a kentiana type. It must be a pottsii or something in that bunch- very dark burgundy. LOL!

One that get's confused with H.brevialata is Hoya incurvula, pottsii is very different from brevialata.

Did you ever figure it out, Susan? What came to mind for me was DS-70 - the dark leaves, the hanging down.

However, DS-70 looks nothing like pottsii, so I could be wrong. Is leaf size similar to incurvula (or brevialata)?
