    I got a Hoya cutting from an elderly friend who has had the Momma Hoya (or is it Parent Hoya) for decades. It is a plain green variety. She was giving it a trim and get me a strand. I've had it sitting in water for months and months and finally I saw a few roots.

    I just planted the two cuttings into potting soil in the hope that once the roots got into soil the plant would start to grow.

    Anybody have any idea how long it should take 'til I SEE new growth?

    The second leaf from the left will open up shortly. Depends on light and temperature.

    I can't tell you because it is wintertime and things go slowly above ground now; however, the roots are another thing. They will continue to develop in spite of the coolness. You will know when it is time to plant this cutting on when it's roots can be seen in the holes in the bottom of it's little pot.

    Thanks guys. I'm hoping the roots will grow now so that come spring I'll see growth but I'm also aware that hoyas are not super fast growers. This is the first one I've ever tried to propagate too.

    My daughter gave me a hoya oblongata cutting that finally rooted and she planted it in a small pot for me. That was at the beginning of spring. It looked like it was doing nothing for MONTHS!!! Literally months. It didn't die, it just didn't seem to be doing a damn thing all the way through the spring and the summer.

    Late summer it finally...FINALLY...put our a new shoot!!! One. Now it has several, and it's doing really well, but it had to establish a strong root system first, before it ever did anything above ground. So there's that. And as someone else said, they're slow growers as well.

    I live in the Land of Hoya Hope. It looks totally healthy but good heavens it is slow. It is also fine and can sit where it is and just grow roots.

    The Land of Hoya Hope! I like that Island.

    I live in the Land of Clivia Hope. Ever since I retired and brought numerous clivias home with me from my office, nary a one has bloomed. And they used to bloom their heads off.

    I live with Clivia hope too. Mine are doing nothing 'cept sitting there. I'm hoping this spring I might get a bloom.
