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. 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.

I will age ungracefully until I become an old woman in a small garden..doing whatever the Hell I want!
