Rooting hoya cuttings in Turface
I wanted to share an experiment I did on rooting hoya cuttings in Turface (High fired Clay). I've read in the C&S forum where some of the members were rooting Jade cuttings in Turface with great success and wanted to try it on a hoya. This is what my cuttings looked like after appx. 4 weeks(even has new growth already!) I was very impressed , Especially since I usually don't have the best reputation(I've done it but given a choice I always prefer rooted cuttings whenever possible...)
I know that everyone has their preferred rooting techniques but just wanted to share another one...at least with this cutting I had good results using it...
Here's what one of the website says about Turface.
Turface is a porous ceramic soil conditioner which lends itself to many uses. Resembling crushed terra cotta, its unique ability to absorb moisture and prevent compaction puts it in a league of its own. Used for:
*Backfilling Aeration holes
*Moisture retention applications
