Susan, the second one is definitely a hoya. I'm not great on ID-ing, but I know that one. What kind of hoya, I don't know.

(( at least I got you to the general category.. ))

Thanks Dawn! Another favorite saying of mine is on a garden sign I found when my husband and I were on vacation about 5 or 6 years ago. I just had to buy this one and pack it in my suitcase for the flight home!

I have a hoya that was sent to me in a houseplant swap - it's from a plant that was a heritage one the family has had for generations. It's the same as yours, Susan Whistling

There are lots of hoyas. Some have roundish very fat leaves, others are tiny and dark, or even variegated. Flowers can be white, pinks,red, even yellow. Some are very perfumed. They can be propagated fairly easily from leaves or from layering the tendrils. Don't overwater them in pots or they will rot, but keep moist. In subtropical climes like ours they will scramble up a tree if it is part shaded. Very hot sun literally cooks them.
If you can visit this site, you will see some of the huge range of one of the nurseries in Victoria Australia. http://www.paradisia.com.au/#!hoyas/h9ymd

omygoodness!! This thread is being resurrected? My hoya bloomed last year (2014/15) but not this year (2015/16). I'm hoping, when we move, that it will bloom again next year. It sure took me by surprise when it bloomed - didn't think it would for about 10 years, but I guess it likes our home Thumbs up

It looks like a Hoya Carnosa. And it is a very nice one. Just in case you may not know, the stem that your Hoya bloomed on, has a sort of spur on the end or spot where it bloomed. Hoyas bloom only on these spurs. Stems with no spurs don't bloom. So as you cut back and prune a Hoya, never cut the stems with any spurs, and look along the whole stem before cutting, because the spurs can pop up anywhere along a stem. Many Hoya do not bloom for years and years. Congrats!!
