A friend of mine gave me a plant she bought from a Church sale a whose image is uploaded. My friend does not know its name or how to care for it. Can anyone help me?
Thank you.

It looks like a Hoya (carnosa?) to me. If so, it is an excellent house plant.

Thank you so much Molly for the very prompt response and the id. Now I can google and find out how to take care of it.
Thanks once again.

Hoya carnosa "krinkle 8" I'm guessing.
