Answer: Unfortunately there are many varieties of hoya (Hoya carnosa or wax plant or sometimes called Hindu rope or any number of interesting names) and the different types are practically given "collectible" status, so I'm not sure which one you have. Some varieties are "rope-like" and others are not, so I am fairly sure you have a hoya of some kind. The best I can suggest is to keep asking and looking, particularly among foliage plant specialty houses such as Logees Greenhouses 141 North St., Danielson, CT 06239 (860-774-8038) or http://logees.com/ or possibly try propagating it yourself by rooting a few tip cuttings. These can take several months to root, but it is always worth a try and spring is a good time to try it.
