Thanks to all for the selection of (and for your wonderful comments on) my photo of this cultivar of Hoya multiflora. I obtained this plant from "Accents for Home and Garden" (Pepper's Greenhouses) a couple of years ago. I find when grown in a bright SW window and keep it on the wetter side for a Hoya (never letting it dry out), it rewards me by being in flower about half the time. It's also a bit
