This is Hoya lacunosa, a unique Hoya that makes a great addition to any Hoya lover's home! Hoya lacunosa is a little quirky and has some differences from your typical Hoya. While most Hoya are known for their thick, succulent-like leaves, Hoya lacunosa is a little different. The leaves of Hoya lacunosa tend to stay small, and are much thinner than many of its Hoya relatives. Another difference is Hoya lacunosa's growth habit. Many Hoya are climbers, and will readily attach their vines to anything they touch. Hoya lacunosa grows primarily as a hanging plant, you wont need to worry about your plant growing up any of the nearby furniture! Because of these differences Hoya lacunosa requires some different care than you may be used to with other Hoya. We've got all of the care info here that you'll need to know to best care for your Hoya lacunosa!
