My Rigida cuttings....

My Rigida is getting bigger, so last 2 months I decided to root a few cuttings. I started to put sphagnum moss around the branches. The roots started to grow, not much, but each branch already produce 1,2 peduncles. I did not cut its down yet, so who want to be the new owner of these cuttings?

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Me too please, if any are still available.

Anything special I could try to swap you or get from NYC?


 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Sue, what a beautiful plant and flowers!! Very cool way of rooting with sphagnum moss right on the plant.


 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Humm... I loved everybody and it is hard to choose; so to be fair, I have 2 solutions:

1- Priority for the person who want to trade it for hoya Patchyclada with red in center.

2- I will take all the name of the persons who response in this post, until Sat. 10pm, 5/15. After that, I will draw 3 names, (I had 3 cuttings in different lengths) who that I pick up first will get the best one and so on.
What do you think?

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

If you could please add my name to the hat.... I would be more than glad to pay for shipping... thanks for the generous offer..


 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

I will make things a little easier and withdraw my request. I realized after the fact that it is huge! As in, it can have huge leaves. I don't actually know if I have the space, and I have others to fit in already.

But it is definitely going on my list of hoyas to consider if I manage to clear up some room somehow!

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Oh! com on Quinnfyre. Don't be chicken, this one have peduncle already, so you will enjoy the flower first, before it getting too big, in 2,3 years,.. My plant is 5 years old, I was like the rest of you, bought a lot of hoya, now what I have, A Jungle!!!...hehe, but my hoya's friends like it, because I share with them, right!!

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Beautiful plant and blooms, Sue. This hoya is one of my very favorite hoyas....though it does grow very large, it has truly endeared itself to me.

Hi Sue,

Beautiful plant! Include my name as well! I wouldn't mind having a cutting or two! I really don't have anything to trade except flower seeds.

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

hi suetran1,

Your plant look lovely. I am wondering why did you use that method for rooting Hoya rigida? I am asking because this hoya rooted very easy for me. here are pictures I took today after 2 weeks in a high humidity container ( sorry for the low quality images, till I get a real camera I used my web cam)

Hoya rigida

closer look

On second thought, did you do it to avoid the way my cutting look?


 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Hi Mayn
The way you do is good too, but the root will dry out and the branch doesn't long enough to cut. What I did mine, even I don't cut, it still like a separate plant, length is minimum 6". I try to keep them moist all the time.
I didn't cut my plant often,when it young, it will take 2,3 years to produce flower, sometime more.
These cuttings are about 2 years old,that why its had flower already.

RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Well everybody,

I'm pleased to report I have nice new growth on my H. rigida that Suetran was kind enough to share.

It's been 3 weeks & just in the last 3-4 days I saw several spots of new growth, including what is now about 1 inch of new stem -- yippee!

Camera's jammed at the moment, I'll try for pix as soon as I can.

Exciting to see this, thanks again Sue!


 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Awesome, PG! Can't wait to see those pics!

 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

 o
RE: My Rigida cuttings....

Ouch! I recently got Rigida from CBFM so I was hoping for some care instructions.

Sorry you lost yours, that happens to us all (more times than I want to remember-LOL!

Susan
