I just bought it at Lowe's yesterday, it was on clearance and I sure like it.
It didn't have a tag and it was the only one left. I would really love to know the name of it so I can look up its care requirements. Thanks so much!

Ceropegia woodii "Rosary Vine" or "String of Hearts" (I think.)

Thank you JasperDale,
I do agree that the Ceropegia woodii looks very similar to my new plant. There is a little difference in the leaf shape and color of mine and all the pictures I looked at of the Ceropegia though. It might be because my plant is still on the small size, or just a different variation.
Im thinking that your right about it though...

You have Hoya curtsii; an excellent example of it too. It's a distant relative of Ceropegia.

Don't over-water your new plant...

Thank you so much Vestia!
That is definitely it, a Hoya Curtsii. I been trying to look up care info on it, but i'm not finding a whole lot. Thanks for the tip on not over watering, I did read it likes to dry out between watering.
Thanks again!!
