Hoya waymaniae - Miss Wayman's Hoya

This distinctive Hoya was first described by the Dr Dale Kloppenburg in 1995 and named after Ann Wayman, a Hoya grower well known in the circle. This is an endemic from Borneo and was reported to be growing in deep shade. I found this plant growing on the adventitious roots of a Grametophyllum orchid at a clearing just beside the dense forest. Such roots are found in some epiphytic orchids to trap debris and leaf litter which nourishes it. No doubt the Hoya found this nourishing as well.
It is temperament plant and many of my plants have come and gone.

Hi. I had a look at your older posts and found some common ground: Kaempferia, Nepenthes and Amorphophallus growing here in Bermuda. Nice pictures.
