possible issue w/ cutting

Rock_n_Ruf(5)November 27, 2012

Good evening everyone!
About a week ago I started a cutting in water and just checked on it... I put it in upside-down...
The mother plant is huge, so, it really won't matter if I messed up, but, just out of curiosity, do you think it will root?

Most Hoyas are capable of rooting all along their stems so your cutting should be fine. Are both ends of the cutting mature or is one young growth? If the growth is still young and green then it may not root as well as more matured tissue.

Cool! That's good to know.
The cutting is definitely more mature than young.
thank you!

It is good to know. I potted up a cutting, that was sitting in water for a week.I was wondering if I should put it in a plastic bag for a bit to keep the humidity up?

It's not a bad idea in the winter. I mean, it's easy to do and it helps the cutting, so why not? Just keep it out of direct sunlight if you put a bag over it, or you'll cook it.

I decided to use a pop bottle with the bottom cut off. Seems okay so far. My house is drafty and cold, so it need all the help it can get.

Sounds great Nes! I hear you on drafty. I figure if I'm cold my Hoyas must be too lol. Just can't seem to stay warm this year.
