Supporting a Hoya

Our Hoya (probably kerrii) is growing off of its bamboo support stake and we wonder if you all might have experience with the best way to support a Hoya in a greenhouse? We could put it on a small trellis or train it up into a corner or other ideas you might have. Thanks and happy growing!

Look at my post below this one and see what I used.Do you have a way of using one of those kinds of shelves in your greenhouse??

RE: Supporting a Hoya

Beautiful display, Kathi, and thanks for the suggestion. It is always more fun to use something like your shelf that has some character!



RE: Supporting a Hoya

Chris uses chains, and that seems to work pretty well. He has a lot of Eriostemmas, which aren't nearly as woody as kerrii, but still tend to grow very up and straight, so it's a similar scenario.

Here's one link, I know there are more threads where he posted pictures, but I can't find them atm. Anyway, I like that method.
