My favorite plant

A long time ago I had a Hoya Carnosa houseplant that bloomed profusely each year.  I've been on the lookout for a replacement ever since and two years ago I found what I'd been searching for at Mid City Nursery.
For the very first time it's finally blooming!  You can see the first cluster hanging lower and on the upper part of the picture is the second bloom that showed up about a week ago.  They are long lasting flowers.
This first cluster appeared over three weeks ago and opened up to this lovely thing.
 They are waxy flowers just like the leaves and have a mildly fragrant scent.
This is how they start out.
