Alexandramou:

You most likely can grow your Hoya vine outdoors along a fence. They like to be grown outdoors in semi-shade to full sun (but not reflected heat).

We used to grow a white one indoors made a terrible mess on the ledge, lovely perfume though.

Yes, the flowers have a lot of honey-like sap.
