Hoya obovata is a unique variety that is identified by its large, deep green oval leaves that often have a silver ‘splash’ pattern. It is typically harder to find than the more common Hoya carnosa but is known for being a faster-growing variety. Its unique appearance makes it sought after by collectors and beginners alike.
