Now that I had a new plant to work with, I was very excited and really did not want to end up losing it. It grew well right from the start and required several up-pottings. One of the things I wanted to guard again was losing this one to root rot so I kept it in pots that allowed me to see more easily when to water this plant. I finally took to actually writing down when I watered the plant to better track it. This is a Hoya that takes very little water. I have been able to go as long as a month in between waterings which is unheard of for me.
