I guess it is new to efi.

I think it should be cultivated.

Though it is in the Botanical Garden it was placed at a very high tree , more than 50 ft. That is why pictures were of not good quality in spite of using zoom. As such, I guess it could be wild.

Thanks, … That may be it habitat.

Yes this is Hoya lanceolata.

Some Hoya sp. Nice photograph.

I guess Hoya lanceolata subsp. bella (Hook.) D.H. Kent

pictures need to be taken in better light, in better details like if there are “hairs” on the petals, details of the structures fully show, as is its too dark and somewhat not clear

Yes appears close to images at Hoya lanceolata Wall. ex D. Don and
How to differentiate or confirm the cultivar or the subspecies ?

Thank you … for validating my guess !
