hello everyone. so i was able to get my hands on some cheap mulch that a friend had extra of after mulching their flower beds... im thinking of mixing it in with my hoya soil because right now its only a 50/50 mix of potting soil and perlite. the question is this, the mulch is cypress mulch, any idea if that will be okay to use in with the soil?

It's all about choices.
Can't see why it would be bad...it would be acidic which Hoyas like. If you are growing your plants indoors, you might consider the fact that the mulch may have pathogens you don't want in your pots...you should look into sterilizing it first (found on Google..I don't do it).
Leap. The net will appear.

thanks! ill look into sterilization... all of my plants are outside until fall, then i have to find them all homes inside, because there were a few sad hoyas this winter that just didnt have the proper place.

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
