The plants are all getting older, I think that has a lot to do with it.

I've had the same experience, but I am convinced that its because we've had a good summer after the long dark dreary year we had last year. My plants are enjoying a little warmth and brightness Thumbs up

maybe the radiation from the disaster at the nuclear plant in Japan last year has really made it around the world!!!! it seems that everyone is experiencing this thing with the new hoya growth growing to be extremely large. I have a number of hoyas that this has happened to this year as well. Some of them i'd bet are 3-5 times larger than normal

Don't know what it is, but it's gotta be something. All I know is some leaves that you didn't think could get that big, are, and are getting bigger.

The same thing here....I purchased plants/cuttings with regular size leaves (last year)... the new leaves came out huge. I was thinking that it could be the new fertilizer, actually a couple of them, that I was playing around with. Confused Shrug! Don't know...
