It's all about choices.
Having tried just about every mix and combination of such in the world....I have settled on a real winner that I am very pleased with for my hoyas and ALL of my tropicals: BIG R + #3 Perlite (#2 OK too). I learned this from a good friend who is a very successful grower of tropicals and who was the Head of Propagation at Waimea Botanical Gardens on Oahu. The mix is about half and half.... BIG R is called (on the bag) a soil conditioner and is essentially redwood shavings. The BEAUTY of it is that it costs under 10$ for 3 cubic feet!!! So, here is a photo of the straight mix:

Aloha Hoya

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
