My History with Hoya sigillatis

My history with Hoya sigillatis began with an order that I placed for a huge plant from an Ebay vendor from Thailand in April of 2011.  It arrived with the roots completely rotted off and most of the leaves had fallen off.  Here is a photo of some of the leaves that were still green:

I managed to get a few tiny cuttings to root from this mess, but the plants never really took off and grew the way that they should have.

Two and a half years ago, I traded a very nice woman in Florida a Hoya praetorii plant for some nice cuttings of Hoya sigillatis and these actually grew much better, albeit with many stops and starts.  Here is another photo photo of my flowering plant:
