I am a compulsive overwaterer; I simply can’t walk by a plant and not water it. I have killed many a plant from too much kindness, and I think that is what happened to my previous Hoya darwinii. By being able to observe the sides of the net pot, I was able to go between 10 days and 2 weeks between waterings. Believe me it was hell trying to stop myself from watering, but I held to it. I went from a plant that would die almost immediately to a plant that was able to hold its own, put on a little new growth, and actually form a peduncle and begin to bud up.
