I grow a few Hoya species.
Most species prefer a spot with bright indirect light with some morning or evening sun.
Being epiphytic, in their natural habitat they scramble up trees and are happiest in dappled sunlight with lots of air circulating around them. Unfortunately they are too often grown in too dark a spot, as they are mistakenly thought to grow down, underneath the jungle canopy instead of up in it.
I pot them in African Violet compost with a good helping of Orchid bark, some grit and a bit of slow release fertiliser.
They like lots of water but very free draining so they dry almost completely before re-watering.
Also a spritz every or other day and I dose them with very dilute organic seaweed once a month.
Hope your Hoya blooms soon.
