I bought this Hoya from Logee's a while back, it was about 8 inches tall, in 6 weeks of repotting it the vine has grown an additional 5-6 inches, I think it likes the greenhouse.

The only downfall is its noted to only flower after its 6-8 feet in length, however my other hoyas bloomed small when I was told they only bloom at 3 feet long, which is a myth. If you give them tlc they can bloom as small as 12-18 inches. Plus, my heart leaf hoya bloomed and the flowers have lasted 3 weeks, only complaint there is the nectar drips out and can stain furniture, nectar is brown looking and very sticky.
