Just thought I'd kick out an update as to how things are going. I now have new growth peeping out from sp. Square leaf cutting no. 1! Cutting no. 2 is starting to perk up ever so slightly, so it may make it after all. Pubicalyx 'Chimera' has put out a couple new leaves, and the newest one is almost jet black. But, it is showing signs of wanting to drop the rest of its older leaves. Not the absolute worst thing in the world, but I hate it when I have negative progress. And speaking of negative progress, parviflora has taken a fairly rapid downward turn. It is dropping leaves left and right. I have it in a bag to keep the humidity up and to help it recover. I hope that helps. Erythrostemma 'Cotton Candy' is also worrying me somewhat. The leaves are getting softer and it has dropped some leaves as well. Patella (white form) is also in a bag, but this is preemptive. It's so small, that I would rather it have some help to start out.
On the up side, finlaysonii is putting out a new leaf! And villosa has decided to start growing. I feel like it must like fluorescent light, because one week after setting it under a 23W CFL, it began growing. Cagayanensis started growing too (hooray!) but it is not under lights.
Fastest growers so far: sp. Tanna Island, buotii, benguetensis, lacunosa and lacunosa 'Royal Flush', calycina, obovata (variegated), retusa, speckled carnosa, and pubicalyx 'Pink Silver'. But my only bloomers were speckled lacunosa (a few times, then it dropped all peduncles) and wayetti, which may finally be done blooming for now.
I will try taking some pics in the next few days. How are all your hoyas doing? Anything particularly exciting or pleasing going on? I've been seeing some nice pics of blooms lately.
