Looks a lot like Hoya kentiana and there are those who belive that Hoya wayetii is a clone of it. Those who do claim they are different species have some points of how to tell the difference between the two, i.e that Hoya wayetii has green pedicels while on Hoya kentiana they are brown. The dark margin on Hoya wayetii, that is sometimes used as an argument to difference, can also occur on Hoya kentiana.

Hoya wayetii is above all a plant for the hanging basket although it can be grown on trellises. But, since it does not climb well on it's own it will need help in that case. The species is one of the more free flowering and together with being easily cultivated it is well suited for beginners.
