  3. From today's JungleDragon Facebook post:

    "Well, wow! Hoya lasiantha grows wild in Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo and is considered uncommon or rare. It has large, golden flowers with prominent coronas that protrude and look like eroded molars! There are 26 species of wild Hoya in Peninsular Malaysia, all of which are epiphytic climbers. Epiphytes grow on other plants and get their nutrients from the air and the rain. They are very popular ornamental plants, and are commonly known as "wax plants" as individual flowers and foliage look so perfect that they appear to be molded from wax. {Spotted in Malaysia by JungleDragon moderator, Albert Kang} #JungleDragon"
