I found this NOID hanging basket plant in Lowes. It was next to Hoya and various ivy and other plants, and from the waxy leaf texture I'm thinking it might be a Hoya. The leaves are about the size of a dime, and there's no sign of flowers. It looks a lot like Hoya curtisii, which someone else just posted about, but it isn't speckled. Any ideas?

It's Dischidia Million Hearts, Hoya's relative. Her flowers are tiny but very cute:
