|Thanks a million for all of the suggestions. I have had zero success so far in rooting H. linearis...but, so far I've only started with vines that were severely dehydrated. I placed 3 foot-long cuttings in my "cloning" machine this past Monday, so far they look viable...but, they tend to look good for awhile before croaking. I've learned the hard way that most cuttings don't like it wet...barely damp seems to work best. I'll give several of the suggestions a try...and perhaps report later of my success/failure. Again, thanks always for all of your help. Dom...you've just got to give this one ANOTHER attempt...just keep it as cool as possible...mine spend the winters at 58 F...the summer can reach the 90's..and they sulk for several months, but perk up once Autumn arrives...such an awesome hoya!! I believe mine need more light, as they've never bloomed. I am having good success with similar hoyas, H. acicularis and H. retusa...very fussy at first, but they seem to be getting stronger everyday...but, a LONG way from the size of the H. linearis. Julie, thanks for the remark that the length doesn't matter, as I'd like to take cuttings of around one foot. Again, thanks!! Fondly, Patrick|
