It's all about choices.
Glad you did, Kim.

Alka...a different 'clone' of a species is still that species... OK... many Hoyas are found in many places - either in the same area, or the same country or different countries. Sticking with H. diversifolia - it can be found all over the island of Palawan in the Philippines...and it is a large island. So, different locations/environments: on a tree growing almost ON the beach/in a field around some rocks inland about 30 miles/on a fence in back of a restaurant in the city...etc. They are all different clones/forms of the same Hoya diversifolia. It is genetically identical to all the others but they may grow differently. It doesn't mean that it is a different species just a different clone.

Another example: Hoya pottsii. This hoya can appear quite different - subtle differences in the leaf shape - as there are many different clones of H. pottsii (just look at the IML numbers for H. pottsii on Liddles Catalogue).
Leap. The net will appear.
