Growing Hoya maingayi Part One

I received a small rooted plant of Hoya maingayi in May of 2019. It arrived in decent shape for a plant coming all the way from Thailand. It grew a little, but what I did next is a cautionary tale, and one I recommend to guard against. Someone approached me and desperately wanted a cutting of Hoya maingayi in trade, and I violated my no cut until it flowers rule and took a cutting. What remained of the plant never bounced back, and developed root rot. There was just enough left to take a one node cutting, but it never really took and I lost the plant.
