It's all about choices.
Yesterday I learned a neat 'tip' from some nursery friends who were visiting.....: If you put the plant you don't want to dry out inside of another pot ON a bed of sand, the sand will dry out first before the medium in the growing pot. I think it's a good idea to put screen in the bottom of the larger pot so the sand doesn't leak.

I'm going to try this with some Hoyas that really shouldn't dry up.

Leap. The net will appear.

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
