Hoya diptera is not a faithful bloomer. Most of the time it's just lush and green. From a distance it can pass for just about any kind of houseplant.

The leaves are light green and don't have any clearly visible veins. Oval shaped.

Yellow flowers with red corona. No scent that I can detect.

Hoya diptera can be grown in a hanging basket as it doesn't climb too well on its own on trellis (though I think it does well in nature when having robust trees to hang on to). I use a trellis anyway and give it some occasional help around it.
