Growing Hoya versteegii Part One

I received a small rooted cutting of Hoya versteegii in the summer of 2020 from an incredibly nice Hoya Grower named Mandy Lin. The plant had pubescent leaves and was growing in Pon. I later transplanted it to soil, but the plant was extremely slow to get growing. Months went by before it grew a leaf; finally I was forced to start it over because of root rot. I rooted this one in coconut husk chips and tree fern substrate. This one rooted easily, but just sat there a long time before growing a leaf.
