Growing Hoya kenejiana Variegated Part Two

The big mistake that I made with this plant is that I never photographed the plant when I had a nice size specimen. As per usual, I generally don’t photograph a plant until I’ve gotten it to flower, and I thought that my Hoya kenejiana Variegated would literally never bloom! It had numerous peduncles that would always blast newly emerging buds. It blasted these new buds scores of times until I had really long peduncles which had never produced a flower.

I finally got sick of it and chopped up the plant into cuttings. I took these cuttings and gave most of them away as freebies to customers who bought my eBay offerings. I saved the worst looking cutting, and what do you think happened? This ugly little cutting actually produced a peduncle, budded up and flowered! Below the plant:
