That one's even weirder, very cool, but unnatural looking.

It is real, just looks that way. They call it Wax flower for a reason :)

I have a serious hoya addiction and would love to get my hands on one like this. Almost purchased one on eBay, but someone else wanted it more, apparently, as I had to stop bidding when it got out of control. I am still learning about hoyas, but it seems like they don't require a whole lot of attention. I am thrilled each time one of my plants bloom. Does anyone known where I might purchase this type of hoya?
