Sorry about the clues, I was in Holiday, and after very busy

Olivier (from another forum) won all !
With intuition, research, method and perseverance - congratulations!

Hoya sp. Sabah AL1950 is a new species discovered in 2009 and under publication (I can not reveal the future name, just the initial "R") close H. spartioides, but unlike the latter, which in adulthood has only peduncles, "R" has peduncles and aciculate leaves (needles)
The peculiarity of the two species is that starting from seedlings, they produce leaves a little bit wider (at spartioides leaves completely disappear thereafter, photosynthesis is carried out by the stems, while in "R" appear needle leaves)
However, the production of new stems from the roots is a rare phenomenon in the Hoyas in general, it had not been seen these both species
And to my surprise, the first node produces leaves as if it were a new plant, while it is the same
I'm curious about the second node : wide or aciculate leaves?

Carol : thanks again for your welcome, I'll send you an e-mail next days
