cpawl(8)June 10, 2010

I was part of a group order from Ted and they arrived today.I only got four this time.I wanted to test the water for my first order.I have had some pretty bad out comes this year.


The leaves look yellow but they are not.They do have a bit of red.

H.parviflora

My H.yellow heuscheliana is blooming for the first time.

Not a hoya but a new member to our family.Her name is chuckie.

Thanks for looking,Cindy

I potted mine up today as well but the two I wanted most are leafless stems, Hoya kloppenburghii and the expensive Hoya sp. Linus. I hope I can get the bare stems to root. The rest of my cuttings look pretty good and some made the trip totally unscathed.

Cindy,
LOVE chuckie! What a cutie!

What are you rooting your parvifolia in? I got a cutting previously and did not do well with it.

Nice selections!

Mike,
Keeping my fingers crossed for your cuttings!

Thanks Cindy :)
I am going to be checking on those Hoyas often. I feel like they are critical care patients or something. LOL

My Hoya parvifolia did not like high humidity to root and I lost more than half of the cutting before I figured that out. This is a really nice little Hoya and now that mine is growing well (not fast) it is a favorite for sure. The leaves get a red blush and the plant has such a dainty character.

Thanks everyone.Chickie is a joy to have.
Mike I hope your cuttings make it.
Kelly I have parvifolia growing in coir in a very small plastic cup(like what a hospital gives out there pills in.
I am now a bit worried about rooting this one.Should I leave it out of the baggie to root? Mike did you still use bottom heat with while rooting?
Kelly did you lose pavifolia?

I also agree that Chuckie is super cute! (Chuckie, or Chickie?)

What are you using to anchor your cuttings? I see a little bit of purple in your pic of parvifolia.

quinnfyre Her name is chuckie.My teenage daughter named her after some movie where someones face is ripped off.I cant remember what movie she said.
I use 2 different things depending on the size of pot.The purple thing is a paper clip that I open and cut to the right size for the pot.I also use greening stick pins.I get both items from the dollar store.

Ah, ok. You typed Chuckie first, then Chickie, so I wasn't sure. I think Chuckie is actually a pretty cute name for a girl cat. Even if she is named after a horror movie :) I'm guessing it's those Chuckie movies, about a murderous doll named Chuckie? I've never watched them.

I thought they might be paper clips. They don't rust? I think I tried pinning some other type of cutting down, and the clip either corroded or rusted. It was a few years ago, though, so I don't quite remember. Something to pin em down can be handy though, especially with hoya vines. Some of them just won't cooperate.

I also think chuckie is a cute name.I usually only use the pins/paper clips while rooting.I always pin long vines down on the coir so I have a better chance of rooting points. Big heavy cuttings I find need help to stay in the pot while rooting.

Cindy I had my parvifolia in the rooting aquarium with bottom heat and it started to yellow and rot. I freaked out and took it out and just kept it out in the open with my orchids and made sure to keep it moist and it rooted. I would not worry too much but if you see it start to struggle try a lower humidity rooting environment. I got my plant in last years DL order and it's still pretty small but I am just glad to have it because I had been searching for that species for a while.

I pin down long cuttings as well because they will root at every node and sometimes along the stem if it is covered in poting mix. I like to use that plastic covered telephone wire because I have a bunch lying around but I have used pebbles to weigh down stems and plastic twist ties in the past with good results. After the stems are well rooted they could also be cut to encourage many growth points but you would have to be sure there are sufficient roots before trying that.

Kelly I am sorry to hear that you lost your cutting.

The cuttings look great!
I'm not sure what Ted is recommending for potting mix these days, but he has often
recommended Orchid Bark (or similar) in the past. While bark might require more water,
especially if the bark is screened, the roots are less likely to rot.

Let us know how it goes!
