I have a few Hoya's and this particular one has this crazy long shoot coming out of it. It has a twisted vine around it. Should I do something with it? It has never bloomed, is this something to do with blooming? Thanks for any ideas - Hoya's a new to me, but I love them!

I say just leave it be. They often shoot out new vines and the leaves come later. It may be trying to take over your room, but you should be fine. Hilarious!

I agree

I have a few with the same behavior, long stem that gets new leaves later.

Ok, I can handle that - it was just sort of weird and I didn't want to cut it off. Thanks!

I agree, it's just sending out new vines and looking for something to climb.
