It's all about choices.
Wandering thru my large pots of hoyas (let's say 6" +) it occured to me that watering AT THE STEM puts a lot of moisture in the most congested part of the root system....and not out to where the feeder roots are. Hmmmmm - epiphanies come at wierd times Whistling So...I am watering around the edge of the pot (inside of course) first and then working my way towards the main stem....hopefully avoiding that nasty stem rot I sometimes get with the old wood on large plants.

Anyone have thoughts about this?
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
