Saturday, August 3, 2013 - Do you know what hoya is?
I'd say it's a gorgeous carnosa, it's plants like this that make me want to get one myself 😍

oh dearie, I swear that's what I meant to say 🤓🤣
Pix are a bit too small to see the leaves well, but Carnosa & Lacunosa leaves are quite different. Lacunosa leaves smaller & usually pointy tipped, which Carnosa leaves are usually thicker than Lacunosa & are rarely pointy tipped.
It's always best to identify when one is simply GUESSING, especially when incorrectly.
Pls explain "🤓🤣"
ET Add: The Carnosas that can have pointy tipped leaves would be Krimson Princess & Krimson Queen, which I should have noted before.
I know both hoya very well, I grew up around a mother obsessed with hoya. It rubbed of, because right now I own about 20 different types of hoya. I typed carnosa instead of lacunosa, even pressed enter, and I have no idea how that happened. That being said, I was very aware of how me saying 'that's what I meant to say' looks like, after being called out on a public mistake like that. Hence '🤓🤣'.
I value this platform for it's knowledgeable members and their input. Therefore I agree that it should be clear when an answer is a GUESS, this was an honest mistake though. You ask me to explain my choice of emoji, but I do think that is a bit nitpicky. I feel this explanation is already more attention than a mistake like this deserves.

The rolling on the floor laughing emoji is a more intensive version of the face with tears of joy emoji. Also know as the ROFL emoji, it depicts a smiling face crying tears of joy while leaning to one side, as if rolling over with uncontrollable laughter. It is used to mark anything that is extremely hilarious.
Well, I did feel very awkward about my mistake and laughed quite loud about my own foolishness now out in the open on the internet! 😂😂
I think I'm seeing at least 5 Hoyas in the photo. I think the furthest is a carnosa. The white flowered one needs a closeup of the leaves and flowers to be sure, but lacunosa or one of its varieties could be right. Maybe another carnosa near the brown pot lower left. I see a leaf from a 'Krimson Queen' near the left, and at the left edge, it looks like maybe a micrantha.

You appear to be new on here, the other people on this thread are not.
I'm sorry you feel it was picky of me to ask, but I have never, ever seen the characters you posted on here before, that's why I asked what they meant. I didn't recognize them as emojis or anything else. This morning they appeared as 2 small boxes, side by side. This afternoon they appear as 2 sets of parallel lines; the top & bottom lines are now gone. I am on the same device, both times; an old laptop w/ Chrome & old Windows 7, should it be relevant.
Hi there, good catch you made, I was so focused on the plant blooming in the center of the pic (so floriferous, as Jeff might say), I didn't observe the different varieties you did on the periphery, thanks.
