My mom had one of those and she called it Donkey Tail. It is a cascading succulent, but I don't know much more about the plant, try Googling succulents, Donkey Tail and see if you can find any info on it. Or somebody else may stop by with more info for you.

I love all my hoyas and yes they are very slow growing. This time of year there should be good growth. All of my cuttings from last fall have new leaves finally. lol not often I can look at the pic without enlarging and know what it is but this time I just happen to have 2 in 8 inch pots and they are 6 feet long vines about 20 vines per pot. I have 9 hoyas for now.

I am not too sure about a secret the red buttons I bought last October from rob's violet barn and they were tiny they spent all winter under a grow light sitting in a cake pan with the bottom covered in water and once a month through the winter they got eleanors VF-11. Then after we moved they were in a west window that got afternoon sun and they just took off all of a sudden. They are potted in 4 " pots with a inch or so of orchid bark then I fill in with some perlite then the rest of the pot gets cactus mix. It sucks the water up but doesnt get too wet
