Just as Hoya megalantha is difficult to come by it is a tender and hard to grow species. It was a long time sought for species that was finally found on Fiji in 2005.

Hoya megalantha is a very tender species. To start with it's not the easiest species to root, it's sensitive to drought and easily drops leaves and it doesn't like to be wet. Ideal is probably a selfwatering pot and very well drained potting mix.

As Hoya megalantha is a cool growing species it's probably best to avoid sunny and warm places. A window facing north is prefered.
