WATERING:
Like most Hoya plants, these are succulents and require very little water. Water weekly during the summer, and even less in winter time. It is even ok to skip a watering, as they do like to dry out before the next watering. They are sensitive to overwatering.
SOIL:
General all purpose soil, heavily mixed in with bits of charcoal, perlite, and bits of bark. Orchid mix will sometimes have all three of these items to mix in with an all purpose soil.  add in some bits of bark as well. Hoyas like to be pot bound, so only upsize when ready. 
DOES IT FLOWER?
Yes, a cluster of small cream colored wax flowers. It flowers quite often as well. 
IS IT POISONOUS/TOXIC?
All Hoyas are considered toxic (as they produce sap similar to the milkweed), but not necessarily poisonous, the amount of ingestion varies from animal, but on a whole the ASPCA regards them as safe to have around pets and children.
CAN IT BE PROPAGATED FROM CUTTINGS?
Yes. These can be propagated anytime using stem tip cuttings. The stems produce aerial roots which can root easily when inserted into a moist medium. Allow your cuttings to dry for a day before planting.
