Thanks for the advice Carol. I'll try the bloom fertilizer before I try anything else but I have some newbies coming and I might try her bark on a few of them to see if that gives me blooms. I thought one needed a rootbound plant in order for them to bloom. That is why I"m concerned that they haven't produced mass amounts of root at this point in time. I was incorrect on the dates too. I got the biggest plant (pink silver) in 89' so she is only about 23 years old but she has done well for me.
I have an office spot that is next to a window so my plants would get a good amount of sun in the wintertime. Unfortunately I am also right under the heating and airconditioning vent so there are often cold bursts of air summer and winter there. Will hoya (say a tricolor carnosa) do well here?
