My History Growing Hoya darwinii Part Three

Somewhere in 2017, I tried ordering a Hoya darwinii from Thailand in a group order and it arrived completely crispy and totally dead. I’m unsure if this counts as one of my failures as I never even planted it as there was no point. A good Hoya friend of mine in North Carolina sent me a small rooted cutting in 2018, and despite taking a little longer to die, it died none the less.
