I bought a plant as "Carnosa picta, (hoya, of course) and I've had it at least seven years, and yet it has not bloomed, and not gotten any longer than 10 inches in all that time. I know hoyas do tend to go through "dormant" periods, but I would have expected it to be bigger than this by now, if not blooming as well! It hardly grew AT ALL for the first few years I had it. It looks perfectly healthy, but I haven't had it in direct sun, just bright light. Maybe that's it? It needs some sun every day? Here's a pic of it.
