This is a question in a group...and I think it's a good question....

Basically: Is there a 'real' H. cembra? Is the plant we have in circulation as H. cembra/H. odorata really H. odorata?

I remember that RDK published H. cembra from an unpublished herbarium sheet....but has it ever been found?

Here's the question

Terribly confused about Hoya cembra (or cembrae) and Hoya odorata.. I've read publications about there is no hoya odorata (cause it's extinct) and all the hoya odorata's actually are cembra. And I've read another publications that say cembra created from an unpublished hoya, called hoya leucantha. So all the Hoya odorata we have, are true odorata. OMG!!

I think that David had his hand in this argument. The true H cembra (that looks like Schlechter's sheet) has never been re-collected - or a least not recognized a such - and I am continually looking for it. I have never been to the Alag River on Mindoro. I was hoping that George ad it.

Our odorata (that meets the description) does not meet the description of H. leucantha (Moore) (from Indonesia ) nor the plant in the herbarium sheet with the untenable name leucantha. I think that this is what David was talking about but he was wrong in saying that our odorata is cembra.


What's the truth?
