My Macrophylla is blooming!

My Hoya macrophylla albomarginata is getting ready to explode with blooms! This is a plant that I sprayed with a sulpher solution last fall, then brought inside. I didn't know if it had flat mites, but from what I read, those people who sprayed their plants saw increased blooming. I figured if it did have motes, this would kill them.

It has dozens of peduncles and some have already opened already. I put it outside this week, in my small hobby GH, along with a heater for the cold nights, but it doesn't seem to mind at all. I'm almost a month early for bringing them out, but I couldn't wait! Here she is:
