We've got several H. lacunosa and this is the first one to flower. The different varieties come from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. It's a smaller Hoya compared to some and its growth habit suits a hanging basket or pot. The leaves are lacunose, which I understand means "cupped" or "sunken" referring to the effect on the leaves the raised veins give. The flower has a lovely fragrance and I've heard that when the plant is large with lots of flowers the effect of that is quite amazing. So for the records our little H. lacunosa flowered in the third week of October. 2006.
