Hoya, probably Hoya carnosa, also known as wax plant for the flowers that look like they are made of wax.

They can take years to bloom, my carnosa I had for almost 20 years before it bloomed, but I have a heart leaved one that bloomed in less than a year.

It looks like some sort of citrus to me. Can you rub one of the leaves a little and see if it smells citrusy?

I started both of mine from leaves, just take a leaf with its stem and put it soil, within a few months it will root and grow another vine. The flowers have an intoxicating scent and a drop of nectar that is sweeter than honey. I am a gardener by trade and have been one since I was a little kid. I have over 400 potted plants outdoors and indoors, some of the ones outdoors are trees in wine barrels or tubs. A hoya can grow a vine up to 30 feet in length, so the best thing to do is give it some sort of support to climb on. My carnosa is on an armature made from two tomato cages, it has climbed to the top, back down and back up again, I just keep weaving the vines in and around the cages and they cannot even be seen anymore.

Thank you very much for the information. I only have 3 plants ;-).

I love Hoyas... Had a beauty I cared for many years and then let it die from neglect. Too many irons in the fire sometimes.

Took my hoya 13 years before it bloomed. gorgeous! Then a few years ago it died down to a couple of stems. It has been in recovery and doing fine. I figure another 11 years before it blooms. Grrr!

I got my first Hoya in 1985, by 2001 it still was only a foot long. I repotted it into a large pot and it took off and bloomed, it has bloomed every year since. I got a leaf from one that looked like a potato chip, it rooted and bloomed its first year and has bloomed regularly since.
