This is a beautiful Hoya that blooms and grows quite easily with ordinary care.  The leaves develop more veining over time (see first photo for what to expect as it grows).  The blooms have a powerful scent and last around five to seven days before dropping.  This Hoya makes a wonderful beginner plant for those new to Hoyas.  

Like most hoyas, these plants like to dry out a bit between watering. When the soil is dry and it's time to water, you should thoroughly soak the potting media. Water until all the soil is saturated and all excess water drains away through the drainage hole. ALWAYS plant Hoya in pots with drainage holes! You can water even less in the winter when growing slows (and sometimes halts).

Hoya like to be root-bound. You should not place them in a huge pot. When it is time to repot, go up only one pot size - meaning when it's time to repot this plant (currently in a 4" pot) only go up to a 6" pot. Hoya want a quick draining soil - use a light and airy potting mix, such as cactus and succulent soil, with added perlite or pumice for increased drainage.

Light: Bright indirect light/dappled sun, a few hours of morning light is great
Water: Water well when soil is mostly dry. Loves humidity - mist frequently!
Pets: Non-toxic

Ships in 4" grow pot with soil - similar to last 3 photos - growers choice.
