In 2020, I made a Thai order and the vendor for some reason omitted one of my requested plants and put in Hoya griffithii var. silver in its place. I was far from thrilled as having failed with this one twice before, I was not really in the mood to try it again. I rooted it anyway, as what other choice did I have. This time for some reason I made out far better than in my previous attempts and the plant at least stayed green and alive.
