When I first got Hoya inflata about 10 years ago, I managed to grow a decent looking plant, and flowered it a number of times. Then for years, I struggled with it, and barely could get it to grow a leaf. It has been started over numerous times, and quite frankly I am surprised that I still have it. That was then, but I started it over again this spring, and for some inexplicable reason it is growing better than it has since very first plant. I have two specimens now growing leaves all over the place and one of them just flowered.
