It's all about choices.
Hoyas seem to have a direction sensor in the tip of the vine...and if the growing tip of the vine isn't allowed to point UP, it easily dies back. Some plants with woodyish growth have to be watched and the growth will harden and the tip can't grow UP. I found this plant had been pinned so the growing tip grew down....and the tip had died back 3 nodes. It wasn't long enough to circle all the way around the hoop. You can see the vine to the right of the hoop...between the hoop and the margin of the photo.

I have been collecting, studying and selling hoyas for about 10 years. This Cubit is about growing hoyas, and about the hoyas I have to sell. I welcome any and all hoya lovers, whether you want to buy or not. Hooked on Hoyas is another great Hoya sight
