In order not to extend the subject much, I will only comment that on my blog I have written a post about a cutting of the Hoya Krimson Queen that I cut on June 18 and sent to Sofia (Bulgaria). The 26th arrived and after five days the receiving person (Simona) wrote to me to send me a photo and tell me that it already had incipient roots. The link to the post is this

    I live in the South of Spain (Europe). Malaga, with 550,000 inhabitants, It is the capital of the famous "Costa del Sol", bathed by the Mediterranean Sea. I live 800 meters from the beach next to a large park and a large promenade full of bars and restaurants where there are all kinds of fish and seafood. The average temperature of some months can be seen here. Type in Google: Antonio Banderas promenade and / or Parque del Oeste in Malaga.

    Is anyone kind enough to tell me how you can send a private message?
    I can't find the option window in this forum.
    Thank you very much

    Hi Pepe,

    Pls try this: pass your mouse over my name where it says KarenS, above, click on my name & then look in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER, pls look for a white box saying Message.

    It looks like yours is enabled for this, so I'll send you a private message.

    Pepe,

    I just sent you a private message. Your regular email should advise you, that you've gotten a Houzz Message from KarenS.

    Forgot to add, I also used to post here under another name: Lmontestella, you may remember her too (improvised translation of my last name into Italian.)

    Let's see if that works for you.

    Just cause I'm feeling playful (& still waking up), here's a water rooted Pubicalyx cutting w/ oddly shaped leaves, which I cut off to root. The shape of this cutting, while not deliberate, makes it what's called in English a 'mallot' cutting.


    Am still considering if I should grow this hydro in just Leca stones, or plant it regular mix instead. I already have several pots of no ID Pubicalyxes, which may all be the same variety, so I'm tempted to try this in Hydro instead. Have only grown H Kerrii in hydro, but that has problems, which I'll put on another thread.

    Curious cutting because I usually leave the upper end out of the water. I do not see the photo very well but looking at the heart shape that knots make, I sense that the longest root is from the bottom of the stem. I'm wrong?

    Hi Pepe,

    "looking at the heart shape that knots make" sorry, I don't understand what this means.

    I did it that way 'cause when I cut it, I wan't paying enough attention & I lost track of which way was up. So I guessed it could root from both ends & then I could plant it that way, ended up as sort of an experiment.

    Hi Karen
    What if it is true that the petioles of the leaves come out from the upper part of the knot. So I know when the knot (heart) is in the correct position to plant the cutting. And going back to see the photo I already have my doubts. I'm sorry I confused you

  • KarenS, NYC

    I said it's experimental, your terms are confusing me more & more.

    Pls use the Spanish term for 'knot', so I can get a translation.

    The only thing I can think you mean is NODE, the joint or knuckle on the stem from which new growth forms. If below ground (or water) will be roots; if above ground (or water) it will be leaves.

    Are you trying to say NODO?

    My English is very poor and sometimes I make mistakes.
    Indeed the joint or knuckle on the stem from which new growth forms is a knot.

    No wonder I'm confused. But if I were trying to explain this in Spanish or Portuguese, I'm sure I'd mess it up too ;>)

    So now it's clear to me, it's not a KNOT, so pls stop repeating that

    it IS a NODE.

    Anyway, am planting it horizontally so it can grow from where ever it chooses.

    Here's its funny shaped leaves, it's off a Pubicalyx of some kind.

    While I handled it for pix, the older leaf dropped off. So, it's in w/ Leca stones & I'll see what happens.

    Now that it's just 2 leaves, I was able to see it better.

    Look what I found, I believe this green curly thing is a new stem, makes sense since it's growing out of the node.

    it's amazing. I had never seen it

  • KarenS, NYC

    Thanks, me either. Would you agree w/ me, that it looks more like a new stem than roots?

    I'll try to post updates.

    Opino igual que tú. El color tambien lo delata (verde = con clorofila). O al menos eso supongo.

    Thanks, I got most of it, but did we lose your translation ability?

    Here's the translation I got:

    [I think the same as you. The color also gives it away (green = with chlorophyll). Or at least I suppose so.]

    Cool, thanks.
