Notes:

Grows towards the light and fills the window facing Southeast. Leaves get bigger at the plant gets taller and larger. Is starting to form a “bark” around original cutting. Hates to be touched or moved. Moist but not wet. Has a milky sap when cut. Plant has a waxy feel to the leaves, somewhat succulent. Stems have the feel of asparagus. So far have researched and not related to the hoya, pothos, ric rak families. Thank you for any assistance.

    Thank you Linda Gay – I believe you are right. Altho my plant does not have any ‘color’ it still looks to be the same species.
    I appreciate your time and response. Thank you.
