@rena  I got them from a nursery in Midrand, they imported a whole lot. 

@abby  to tell the truth, i don't have an idea.  I only got them in july and struggled to keep them alive during winter as they had just been imported from the far east.

That's an unusual colour for a hoya - but lovely.

Are the leaves softer than the carnosa's leaves?

This hoya isn't even a creeper, it grows like a normal plant
