Help me identify this plant. My mother has had this for at least 20 years & it has just flowered for the first time! Neither of us has any idea what it is.

Thank you @tiggrx @jules & @angiecrazycatlady My mother is all for getting rid of it, so I'll be having it. Looks like it has a lot of cutting & layering material on it with signs of roots/arial roots developing already, so @angiecrazycatlady if you want a bit of it, let me know.

I have this Hoya and love it.....it is very easy to take cuttings just snip lengths off and stick them into compost.....water and that's it.....they may take a while to flower but no where near twenty years 😘

Thanks @AcornBank I think it got a little neglected at my mothers, who is not a great plant lover. I'll certainly give cuttings a try as you suggest. 👍

Stunning plant! I've been put off getting one after reading it rarely blooms! How long did the flowers stay on?

@smeets the flowers last several weeks once they appear. I shall be inheriting this as sadly my mum passed away last month.
