I am unable to provide picture's at this time,i will apologize if i ramble (i know i do) here's the best description i can provide without pictures of the plant.
I have been in the hospital for a few weeks.I hired a lady to care for my plants.I was under the impression she wasn't new to caring for plants and said she had a good many.Next time i will ask for the names of her plants.
We had surprise rainstorms the whole time i was gone.Even with a place to put specific ones in case of to much rain or get out of sun etc... I left a list!!

When i got home i could see the yellow leaves on my H.polyneura from the window!!! Angry I have noticed this Hoya rarely ever drops a leaf,they will rot on the stem.As my hubby pushed me up the hill to my plants,not sure who was saying more ugly words!! Grumbling Me or the hubby!
When i got to it could have fell out of my wheelchair,the help will be paid in mushy,yellow leaves.

One side of the plant seems to be worse than the other.I'm sure it has some root rot.Small,new growth,stems with 4 to 6 sets of leaves i have already pulled for rot.Some of the older mature stems have lost their green healthy color,turning tan & not easily bending starting at soil level, with the stem greening as you go down.As the stems look healthier nice healthy leaves appear.
With problem stems starting at soil level,should i cut good healthy cutting's from these and discard rest w/roots.
The pot is very root bound,i guess with all the rain running through the pot makes the roots very visible & noticeable.Looking even more root bound.The plant has dried out,put in an open airy place.

This is an EA plant still in EA soil.
EA is good at filling pots with bunches of rootings!
what type soil is best for this plant ?

Should the plant be trimmed to start a new plant for a back-up plant and a smaller trimmed plant may recover easier & quicker. If the plant does make it.

How easy does the H. polyneura root ? Would it be a better use of my time to take cuttings & work at propagating them and re-pot original plant in another pot?
I asked for a flower and he gave me a garden,then grand-kids to work in it with me!!!!
