I also have experienced this "resurection" a number of times in the past. Several times when it looked certain that I would lose a particular plant, I took cuttings, and that practice inevitably led to having duplicate plants. The plant I thought for sure that was going to die recovered, and then my cuttings lived as well. It is also funny that one of the plants that you mentioned - H magnifica was also one of my offenders.
As many of you know, I take pride in trying to raise large specimen plants. Some of mine have recently not performed up to expectations, and in almost all cases, they were incredibly root bound when unpotted. While some Hoyas perform better while rootbound, I am beginning to believe that the majority do not. It is however a very tricky balance, because it is far easier to kill a recently repotted plant, then a rootbound one. Although, I did recently kill beautiful specimen of H. leucorhoda that was rootbound by overwatering
Any how, I can't wait to return to regularly posting here. Right now life does not really permit, but in a couple of months I should be back. By then I will be able to post photos of my new windowed plant room - I'm very excited about it.
