It's all about choices.
In the heat of summer I also have to water more often.... The important thing for me is that there be the ability for air around the roots (remember...these grow on trees with their roots exposed, for the most part, to air...

This is what I would do to make it even a better mix: I have been experimenting with mixes, observing the larger pots as I pot UP and taking notes. I think I would use hydroton and the bark mix...maybe some perlite, maybe not depending on how moist the plant needed to be. With hydroton unavailable here, I am having to use GrowStones (I talked about these earlier, somewhere) which are larger than hydroton but MAN O MAN..they retain and wick water amzingly well.

So...again...will put some information together with pictures and start a post...experimenting as we go. Won't get to the store for more GrowStones until Tuesday....
Leap. The net will appear.

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
