Probably the smallest leaved Hoya species available. The branches are like threads. The leaves are slightly pubescent

Hoya microphylla is very sensitive to drought. It is best grown in a selfwatering pot with the water container always filled to maximum.

My plant hasn't bloomed yet so the photo of the flowers were taken at a friends house.
