Little Curtisii, another of the Hoya genus named for Thomas Hoy, is as different from other Wax Plants as can be. Curtisii looks more like a String of Hearts than a Hoya, and grows like a Hearts as it sends thin stems over the edge of its container with dime-sized pairs of roundy leaves with extra pointy points on them. Colored in muted pine green with dull silver freckles and borders, the twin sets of leaves are produced close together on their vines, and lap over each other lavishly when older. Hard to detect sometimes, but so worth the hunt, are the flowers. Starting out as fugitive sprays of dull green fists, they open to creamy, waxy things with chubby, splayed backwards fingers fronted by a five-lobed, carved wax flower painted with a magenta line drawing of a five point star, and ending in a yellow center. On top of that, they are so fragrant, starting with a fresh green scent, aging to citrus, finishing in a ripe melon, like a fine perfume's performance.
