In the basement under fluorescent lights. By years end It will be too tall for that and I'll have to let it go dormant. Sad

Can you raise the lights up higher ?

I have a friend that grows Hoya's in Vermont. He has quite an elaborate set up in his basement.

Last year my A. x portora reached around 7' tall grown in ground. Potting it up added 12-18". The tallest leaf was in the rafters Green Grin! so I let it go dormant. I tried waking it up in late winter and half the tuber rotted. I had potted up 3 offsets and they did fine. If I can figure out how to wake these guys up early I should get some decent size every year.
