It's all about choices.
It's really not a good idea to trim the roots. Some growers do it, but they are very experienced and have a lose light potting soil. Hoyas grow in the wild semi epiphytically, sending out new roots along their vines to hold on and to receive nutrients from. In culture the poor dears have to depend on one set... They enjoy being pot bound so I would pot up just a wee bit.

If you DO trim the roots, make sure that when you water the plant ALL the inner roots get wet. If the roots are coming OUT it generally means that they are looking for more water. You might check the root ball, they can get so thick water cannot get through....

Hope this helps.
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
