I wonder what caused this. When I got it I couldn't tell which end was up. It was like a middle cutting if that makes sense, clean cut on both ends so I just stuck it in the pot. Guess I lost the 50/50 and now look....you think I should cut it now or wait till the blooms finish?
Yep there are roots there too. This rooted in about a week. Here is a picture of the whole thing, don't mind the messy desk, hoya stuff, LOL
Now where would you recommend I cut this. The leaf in the forefront is a piece that had broke of in the mail, I just stuck it in there too and you can see those roots sticking out.
Name: Carol Noel Hawaii (near Hilo) It's all about choices.
First of all...it doesn't matter if you change it or not but you might just cut it and put them both in the same pot...insurance! I would cut it just below the second node from the top. The plant will continue to grow that way...either way. It just will send new growth/peduncles out from below the node....
I would be curious to see the bloom as it doesn't look like padanguensis....
I planted H. fraterna upside down myself; it didn't look upside down at the time. I've never bothered to change it and it grows fine even if it does look a bit weird. Taking a cutting for insurance is a brilliant idea.
OK, I cut this in half and stuck the end with the roots showing in the medium. Everything looks fine and the buds are still on even after messing with it. Will hold my breath that they don't blast.
I have 2 different colors of pachyclada and the leaves kinda looks like it, but the peduncle is big and the buds are longer than my pachyclada. Guess I will have to wait. Hope it is padangensis mainly cause I wanted it, but I would hate to be the bearer of bad news to the person I traded with.
