Hoya polyneura
Hoya polyneura Yet another Indian species, this time from the Himalayas. Its distinctive thin, veined, leaves have resulted in the common name of "Fish-tail Hoya". Its stems are quite rigid, eventually hanging down as they grow longer. The unusually coloured flowers form beneath the leaf pairs and so need to be seen from below to be appreciated.
