It's all about choices.
A H. imperialis growing outside was looking horrible....so I dug it up and it really looked BAD! I cut off dead stuff, and planted it in orchidbark/perlite at a 45deg. angle...kept it damp...not wet. About a month later...this is what it looked like:Thumb of 2013-06-17/AlohaHoya/cce738

I trimmed off more dead root...and was careful to leave the fresh new roots in tact...repotted it up....Thumb of 2013-06-17/AlohaHoya/67deb5

This is what totally dead root looks like...Thumb of 2013-06-17/AlohaHoya/99f013 Really, nothing viable there!!!!

I'll carefully nurture this until it puts out new fresh growth and when I can, I'll cut it to root. I have a feeling that this old piece of root could croak at the slightest discomfort...but will be able to save it with the new growth.
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
