Growing Hoya desvoeuxensis Part One

As you all know, I desperately tried to flower a plant that I believed to be Hoya desvoeuxensis for three years, and when I finally pulled it off, the plant turned out to be Hoya vitiensis Yellow. My good friend, and Hoya grower extraordinaire Julie Kennedy felt badly, and sent me a rooted 3 leaf cutting in sphagnum from someone who had actually flowered it, and knew for sure that it was the correct plant. The cutting arrived on my doorstep in late July of last year (2022). I gently transplanted the plant into a 7oz clear cup and filled in around the sphagnum with coconut husk chips.
