    Leaves - smooth, 3-4 leaves in a whorl. Has never bloomed, but puts out long stamens (?). Is very root bound in a pot that has no drainage holes. My husband says it's a hoya and doesn't like to be moved. After 10 years of hands-off, I want to know more as I think this plant could be doing better. Would love to have it bloom and know what it's called. Many thanks for your ideas and advice.

    It appears to be coming into bloom. The first image shows a flower spike like a Peperomia would have. A guess based on that would be Peperomia trinervula, but this is not a plant I am familiar with so I could be way off.

    My money would be on Peperomia pereskiifolia.

    Yes, that surely looks like the plant.
