Hoya apoda came to me as a small rooted plant with the name of Hoya exilis from a wonderful grower in Phoenix. We exchanged Hoyas in trade, and I was happy to get a new plant to try, and one that I had not heard of. It came growing in Pon, and for those who are not familiar with it, the substrate looks like fine aquarium gravel. I grew it that way for about 3 months, before I switched it over to tree fern.
