I can't help you with the hoya.I've had one for a year& its finally decided to grow some leafs(dog knocked pot.I couldn't find all the soil,so added some fresh and tucked other end of vine in soil...I'll be damed....its got 3 new leaves)

spiderplant.
trendles...do you mean the ends of the leaves?or the stem that shoots out with the babies?

Leaf ends...useually soil is staying too soggy.they are pretty drought tolerant(I grow a few in ground as ground cover)I've also heard of some kinda contenet being high in the water causeing tips to brown/yellow.

babys...after a while I imagine the stem would give out supporting babys.when mine get small roots....or is fall.I pluck/tuck/give/share or stick out in yard.and most times I pull stem out and a new one will come up eventually.if they get leggy looking can re pot with fresh soil and can stay same pot size or go up a size.they bloom good pot bound.
I got my 1st one in TX when was about 14.I was at laundry mat and one fell in basket.That original eventually ended up in a huge pot(was probably a 25 gallon pot,but not for sure)I rember when was 18 and this thing would have 10-20 stems with babies on them all around the pot.My mom actually THREW the original plant away(I was ONLY 5 hours away!)she did keep a baby,but had said that pot was just TOO BIG to haul in by herself(she got married the next year...there was her help!) I got 3 different ones now.would love to find the gold/green one.
