SWEET. Yes, Please.

Oh, I need to tell you that a couple of the cuttings I sent were taken off the trees....so you are getting, actually, the kinds of cuttings we bring back from collecting!!! I find that the BEST way to get them rooted is:

Get a shallow pot (I use anything from 2" deep to a large bulb pot). Lay the cuttings around the pots, without cutting them, with a shallow bit of media ... sometimes a weight on the nodes helps. You are trying to remind the cutting (and all of the little roots) that it can go back to the way it lived on the tree.... the whole cutting will root, and new growth will come from the nodes and the terminal end. Somewhere I have a tutorial and will look for it....

Carol I tip my hat to you.

Awesome! That's the way I rooted H. curtisii. I used folded twist ties (bread ties) to hold it to the soil, until it rooted.

Okay, would it be alright if I sent the H. compacta next week? I'm a bit short on funds for shipping, til then. :) And do I ship to the PO box? The plant isn't huge, so would one full rope do?I think mine only has 5. And what method of shipping should I use?

Carolyns' H. compacta arrived in beautiful shape...beautifully prepared and shipped. Carolyn's huge cutting is the best example of a H. compacta!!!! I have seen. Really fresh and healthy! Anyone trading with Carolyn is in for a treat!!!!

I have been collecting, studying and selling hoyas for about 10 years. This Cubit is about growing hoyas, and about the hoyas I have to sell. I welcome any and all hoya lovers, whether you want to buy or not. Hooked on Hoyas is another great Hoya sight
