    I have had this indoor plant for many years. I thought it was a Jade Vine but it it not even close. It is slow growing, prefers filtered light and has not bloomed.It has rather rope like vines. It is a tropical plant from Logee's but I have been unable to successfully email them.Any experts out there know this plant? Here is a close up.

    I think it is in the Hoya family.

    So I did find it to be a Hoya. How do I get it to bloom? And what of the imperfections on the leaves? I never see any insects..

    If I remember correctly, they are susceptible to mealy bugs. They can live in those folds and crevices and never be seen. Also, spider mites like them, for the same reason.
    The only hoya I have seen bloom was a pretty old plant, but it was beautiful. It looked like little pink velveteen flowers with diamond centers.

    Actually, it looks like there are mealy bugs in the pic. The little white fuzzy spots.
