Well a Hoya I want to get is macrophylla "Snow Queen". The leaves are nearly painted in silver! It's a bigger leaf size than I normally am attracted to but oh my it's a beauty! I'll have me one in time!

"Good morning hoya growers. Beautiful day in the sunshine state. Hope my hoyas love it. Just checked all of them and they look great. Joni I have about 6 inch vine growth on my publicalyx "Black Dragon' and all the others are…"
"I was just chatting guys don't get in a wad. I understand about hoyas more than I talk about. Since retiring from teaching mathematics, I spend a lot of time researching. Jessica I am going to grow some of these in just pots and…"
"LOL. What, me, over the top?! :P
I love your response. So, maybe there are some Hoyas that stay "new looking" longer? Like, those with super hard glossy leaves like bicknellii or those that with rough resistant surfaces…"
"Great response Jessica...leave it up to you to go over the top with a detailed explanation and respond as well. I enjoy all kinds of leaves that are 'perfectly shiney and new'. Since most of mine are growing outside they get imperfections…"

"There are three categories of Hoya foliage that really ring my bell.

Leaves with a sharp blade-like shape (e.g. rigida 1424, acuta, amoena, pallida, EPC…"
Just wondering as I collect, which hoyas have the nicest leaves? I love the ones with prominent veining, splashed or variegated. I like the small leaved hoyas well really I like them all, but which would you reccommend, so I can look at some pictures on the net. Thanks guys for your input. All my Joni's are growing and looking good.See More
"Well had to share my Joni order, once again lovely plants as I expected. I did get upset at the mailman. He had a lady help him deliver today and he did not put my order on her truck, which she delivered to my condo. So I called the post office in…"
I hope you are o.k. with the storms hitting you.... Do you have lots of Hoya more than 18? I like them but have been discouraged in the past with problems. Up here we get so little light only in the Summer I would be able to leave them out but where.... in the shade I suppose. I don't really know much about these plants and every year I look for blooms but I get none. I hope to learn from this group.... Who is Joni who sent an order out, does she sell Hoya's?
