Thanks so much! Of all the books I have none of them are for houseplants. The plant was given to my mother over 8 years ago and this is the first time that it has flowered.
Thanks again.

the hoya needs to be rootbound before it will send out the 'rat tail' (vine with little or no leaves) that will eventually flower. don't cut these rat tails .... ever!!

the scent of the ones I had was out of this world!

Ohhhhhhh, memories!! My mother had one of those when I was a kid. I remember how pretty the flowers were and how sweet they smelled, but they also dripped a very sticky sap which didn't go over too well with my mom. Not that she'd ever discard a plant for that though, LOL! I wouldn't either.

I think she propagated it by pinching off a leaf or a twig and setting it in water to root.
