I had two baskets of Hoya curtisii a few years ago. It didn't survive for long under my care. They were both out on my deck with all of my other Hoyas, receiving bright indirect light. I read somewhere recently that H. curtisii prefers cooler conditions so it might have survived longer if I'd kept it inside in the air conditioning and not outside in the high heat and humidity.
