Repotted Some Today..Continuing Tommorrow

Hi everyone,

At Wal-Mart yesterday, they had six inch terra cotta pots for a dollar each so I bought three of them. Here's what I just got done doing.

Red Buttons cuttings (a Christmas present for my friend)
This tiny pot was only 85 cents and the saucer was only 50 cents!

Motoskei went into one of the larger pots. I cut the vines back to the soil line and potted them in new medium. The soil I had them in was too moist and I think that's what was causing the leaf drop.

I'm going to repot two more hoyas tommorrow, I don't know which ones yet, but I'll report back tommorrow to let you know.

I think the terra cotta looks more old fashioned
(classic), don't you? I like it!

Looks good Brad but I would reccomend that you position the Hoya pubicalyx vine so that the growing tip is pointing up. The way you have it now often causes the tip of the vine to die back.

Thanks, Mike!

I readjusted the vine but it's difficult to keep on the trellis (an old coat hanger). I'll tangle with it more tommorrow.

Here's what else I repotted today. It's been raining all day, so I couldn't do it outside.

Carnosa (from TigerDawn's grandmother's plant)
This pot had originally a bromeliad in it a year or so ago but I used it to hold the small plastic pot the carnosa was in until today. It seems a little snug in the pot, so maybe some blooms soon?
