will this zippie bag method work for hoya carnosa and hoya sheperdii (string bean)?
Very interesting video, I learned a lot! (And liked/ subscribed, I’m a big Hoya fan). Do you have any suggestions on what to do with cut/damaged leaves on Hoya from shipment? I have two plants that didn’t fair well as far as foliage. Just curious if it’s best to leave them be, or to remove them so the plants can use their energy more efficiently? Thanks so much! : )
Thank you for this video....I had my Hoya for a couple of years....It would bloom a couple times a year...I moved and I think it went through some shock...I noticed it was dying so I watch your video and I kept it in a bag with a little water for months maybe about 4 months...When I opened the bag yesterday I had so so many roots....I made to pots of this plant....Thanks again...
I have never had luck rooting my Hindu rope cutting. With your tip, it WORKED! Thank you so much!
Thank you for the tips !! Like your video ‘🌿
Hoya nice cutting. Where do you buy???
Where do you buy your cutting???
OK I did it, but my cutting is only two leaves. I imagine it works exactly the same. Have you ever tried semi hydroponics with lecca pellets? My orchids thrive this way. I think Hoya would be ideal for it.
Thank you for your video. Where do you place your Hoya cuttings? In a window? In the dark? I live in Canada so winter is soon apon us. Many thanks, Susan
Wow, I think I did something wrong lol -- my hoya sprouted roots within 2 days, and 3 weeks later we've got white root tendrils everywhere. I watched the video twice and didn't catch when the hoya may be planted after this treatment. I'm going to try to plant it tomorrow and see what happens. A muggy humid Ontario summer has maybe helped the situation, but frankly I'm amazed at how well this worked. Any tips on propagating shrimp plants would be appreciated.
Wow...thanks for this awesome tip! But I was wondering if it will also work with one leaf? Does it has to be 2 leafs?
Hey! I used your method of sticking hoya cuttings in a Ziploc baggie with a little water and warm air. Roots started forming within a week and a half maybe? Within 2 to 3 weeks I had long enough roots to plant the cuttings in soil.Well fast forward to today, I'm seeing a teeny nub of new growth coming from one of the cuttings!I'm a complete black thumb...so if this worked pretty smoothly for me...it can work for anyone. I tried growing roots with one stem in water and some in the baggy. The baggy ones grew way longer roots in faster time. I ended up putting the water cutting in the baggy. Lol.After I transplanted them to soil, I lightly watered them every couple days to give the roots a teeny bit of moisture.Soil mixture I use is Fox Farms potting soil, Coco Coir, Perlite, and Orchid Bark. Thanks so much for this video. It really helped a noob like me have confidence in propagating hoyas from now on!I already have more hoya cuttings in a new baggy. :)
Thanks, I have two hoya cuttings that are just sitting in the pot doing absolutely nothing for a month, I'm going to try this.
My attempt to root using your plastic bag greenhouse method is working I have roots !!! Thanks / How long to wait before planting ??? I tried rooting in water years ago the roots would start then just die off ... this method is like magic again Thank You
I found your plastic bag method really interesting I was going to try putting in water only but your method makes a lot of sense . I am going take the cuttings right now & get them in plastic bag and pray I have the same luck you do . I live in New York State & love the scent of the blossoms of my hoya plant in the bathroom window behind the clear shower curtain . Wish me luck
Great idea, it works very well. The cuttings are thriving. Thanks for the idea.
Going to try this. Thanks
can you pls tell me what the correct time to do this way? in which month?
i find the Hindu ropes difficult to root. i'm curious as to the outcome.
Great advice, thanks!
what to do witte the hoya picta ?
also... I'm referring to the Hindu rope hoya. i cant believe this is my first time seeing it. im excited about getting this one on the mend this & then hopefully starting a collection of them. :)))
Thank you!!! I rescued a bunch of plants at once. (The previous owner was watering w Gatorade. What a nit wit.) anyway... as I was overwhelmed I lost track of her hoya.. it got scorched. I'll try the bag technique. it feels right. so glad I found your video. Its been my fav all day so I subscribed. Have a great day, thanks for the confidence & keep us posted on your hoyas. Many blessing! :)))
where would I cut the plant in order to get a start?
I'm going to try this today. I put my hoya in too bright of a room, and the next thing I knew, it was dying. I hope I can salvage some it.
Thanks!!!! We took a cutting from my boyfriends grandmas Hoya and had no idea what to do! Hey you said Wally World in your video, do you live in Santa Clarita?
Hi thanks for the video have just taken a heap of cuttings from my Mums hoya some had roots some none at all so as I have potted them I will keep an eye on them and if they start to drop I will try this method :)
Great tip, I did this yesterday, hope I am as successful as you!
awesome thanks will try it to...
The bag method seems promising.Have you experimented with other cuttings?
Very interesting . Never saw them in a bag before
