Hi Xavia

The correct name is Hoya Carnosa , from the other name I suppose it originally came from Mexico. I have seen some of your other pictures and we are glad to see that you are also a cat person . We have two cats - Sweetpea and Digby and two dogs - Spike and Tina , their pictures are on my member page . Also saw some of your wildlife pictures , we love visiting the game reserves , or favourites are Kruger and Addo . We were up at Kruger a month ago and saw some wonderful sightings - all of the big five including a cheetah stalking some impala , he didn't catch any though , much to Pat's relief .
