midmercury(6)October 7, 2009

I am looking for someone that will send cuttings/seeds preffer cuttings though for postage I am new to hoyas and do not have any to trade and most of what I do have to trade is seeds frow flowers in my garden. Would love to have any but would really like to start out with the easiest ones to grow right now.

Hi, I don't have any cuttings to share at the moment. But I would like to offer some advise. Sometimes even the experts have trouble getting cuttings to root, depending on what kind of Hoya it is. May I suggest you spend a few extra dollars and get a rooted cutting from an on-line vendor?

Since you are new to the hoya world, and don't get me wrong, they aren't hard to grow, but I think you may have better results if you start with a growing plant. Trust me, there is a lot more to it than just sticking it in water/soil, if you want to be successful.

You would proably end up paying $5.00 + for postage on a cutting. There are vendors on E-Bay, as well as others, that sell them for a little more than that + shipping. But by the time you buy everything to amend your soil, get a pot and all the other stuff that goes along with successfully rooting hoya cuttings, you will have spent a lot more than the cost of a rooted plant on the web. And the ones you get are already in good soil, a decent pot that will accomodate them for a while, and have had all the feeding they need to grow up and be big.

Another good source is SRQhoyas, she is so sweet and her postage is very reasonable. She will treat you right.

Just my 02 cents worth. . . . Good luck,
