I have about 6 hoyas starting new cuttings in here... The cuttings are still growing from the Mother Plant...weighted down. A few I am doing as 'cuttings' at the same time to see which is faster..... The mix is the same....Thumb of 2011-01-02/AlohaHoya/e66c9b

Looks like a winner Carol. I bet they'll root stronger like this too. I'm going to soil layer some grapes next year, first time trying it. :)

VERY well, Donna. Some hoyas are ready to pot UP in a couple of days...some take longer.

I am MORE and MORE of the opinion that hoyas take differnet times rooting...just as they bloom more or less often or frequently. Each species is quite different...and wthin the species there are many differences......

I did an experiment with H. schneei: I took cuttings to propagate and I layered vines on a pot of medium with a rock as a weight.... Definitely the cuttings took first and strong. Now...this is schneei which is in a particular group of hoyas like H. odorata, H. paziae, H. rubida.... Will report back in on others I have rooting by layering. I am curious as to the different types and how successful it is..... Hurray!

AH, it worked VERY well... Laying them ON the medium with a weight on the node is a very effective way to root...especially fine vines and older 'wood'....

thanks for asking....

Great, I was trying this even before reading this post or before your advice in another threat! This was the way my grandmother use to root difficult plants! I just copied her idea!

I was thinking about doing this to increase the amount of vines I have growing in my pot of H. Royal Flush. I am wondering if I do not cut the vine away from the mother plant - will I get new shoots where the vine has been layered into the soil? I would really like to see new shoots.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank youj.

This might be OT. But I root my cuttings in solo clear cups. My question would be, should I pot them into larger pots (4 inch) when I see growth and can see the roots in the cups or just leave them to get root bound? Depends on the hoya???

@ Caroline...often when I wind the vines in a pot around atrelllis, some of them touch the soil and root and do not necessarily create new vines. Sometimes hoyas will do this if you pinch back the new growth...not always...

@Susan...not really clear as to the question. Blinking Can you reword it?
