Growing Hoya onychoides New (AH-455) Part Two

After the roots were gone, I took a strong cutting and rooted it in leca and put the plant in a semi-hydro pot. At the time I was converting many of my plants to leca thinking this was going to be the answer to some of my rot problems – trust me that it was not the answer! This plant grew strongly for a while through out most of 2020 and then stalled out in the latter half of the winter. The biggest problem with growing in leca using a reservoir is that if you don’t flush regularly with clear tap water you will quickly get rot, and that is what caused the plant to stall out.
