ok, so someone very kindly offered me some cuttings, and when i recieved the package i opened it and was surprides when i saw not the cuttings i was expecting but two rooted plants that were sent to me by mistake. ive had them around and have been considering them and i dont really care too much for them. i have a H. cv. iris marie and D. geri... i just dont really like the dischidia as much as hoyas and i dont care much for the iris marie because its going to need to be a climber and i dont really have room for it, i need stuff thats going to be okay in a hanging basket. heres some pics, i was just wondering if anyone would like to trade some hoya cuttings or hoya rooted plants for them??? email me if interested...

Most of the hoyas will be climbers, that depends on how you train them. Maybe you need to check and see if the one who sent them wants you to send them to the correct person. That would be the honest thing to do if you got them by mistake.

ive already spoke with the person, i did so the minute i got it. she said oh well i can keep them and she would figure out something with the other person. i always do the honest thing, i even offered to ship it back to her and she said no just keep them.

'Iris Marie' is not a climber at all. Mine hangs down about 3.5 feet below the pot...

And Dischidia geri turns into a gorgeous hanging plant. I'm surprised you don't like either of them if hanging is what you want. They're both so healthy looking, too. I'd be leary of stressing nice healthy plants by mailing them again so soon...
