What Type of Hoya Is This?

I am curious as to which type of hoya this may be. I don't think it is a carnosa. I saved it from a local nursery, it had ill variegated leaves as if two plants had been put together which I removed. After some fresh soil and a good drink it's getting new growth.

Hello !
You will have to wait for the first flowers to be sure but there is a good chance that it is an hoya carnosa. If your local nursery is not an hoya specialist it is quite sure that it is an hoya carnosa. It is not because it doesn't have the little silvery grey spots on its leaves and that the leaves are light green instead of deep green that it is not a carnosa. The colour and the silver spots on the leaves depend on the light and the growing conditions. I hope you will soon see its flowers as it may be not so rare but its flowers has one of the strongest chocolate/rose smell. Good luck for the flowers as it is a bit capricious.

Hi Catherine, thank you for your response to my question. I am going to upload another picture of the new growth my hoya has got.

I have two leaves that are a deep purple color! This exciting because it's possible I may have got my hands on a pubicalyx. Still may be to early to tell, but another lead none the less.

Hi Catherine, thank you for your response to my question. I am going to upload another picture of the new growth my hoya has got. It has a deep purple or maroon color to it, which is exciting because that opens up a possibility of it being a pubicalyx! I would love e to get my hands on that variety, it may be to early to tell still but is possible.
