|It looks like H. diversifolia....but...diversifolia means "diverse foliage" so... In the Philippines we kept seeing huge Hoyas growing in trees and we'ld stop and run to it and...OH, H. diversifolia! The telltale sign of H. diversifolia is the margin of the leave...the edge...where the bottom of the leaf meets the top. On diversifolia it isn't recurved...it is very straight and sharp...the margins have an edge to them. That's all I can say...an edge unlike most other Hoyas.
I've never grown a diversifolia that would bloom! Even the ones I brought back from the Philippines... EXCEPT a clone that Ted Green has he calls Anthony. The leaves are beautiful!!!!! HUGE!! and it does bloom. The blooms don't happen within the plant, like many Hoyas...but only at the ends of the growing vines....so I have this HUGE plant hanging and the vines growing up towards the light in the ceiling...and blooming to beat the band!!!!!
Leap. The net will appear.
