H. holliana

This grows under my grow lights also. It took awhile to get going but finally it seems to have found a growth spurt in the last while. It wasnt the easiest hoya to root either. I like how the new leaves have a reddish hue before turning green.

At quick glance, I thought the look looked very mistletoe-ish. But that's a lovely looking specimen.

I've never heard of this Hoya Sandy is it a Carnosa Cultivar?

Yes it does look quite ornate and prickly almost!..I do think it is a carnosa cultivar and it doesnt seem that common to come by, here in Canada anyway. It looks like a miniature version of Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen' i think..
