I did try it and I did find some of the hoya gang there.

Thank you.

I lost most of my hoya due to a freeze this winter and last. What didn't freeze is just starting to come back. I have them hanging outside and can't bring them in when it's cold because of insects in the soil. I cover them with blankets, but this past winter was a doozy. It was in the lower 20s for almost three weeks.

imadigger,
If you have a garage you can move them into when it's cold, and then cover them, they will usually do ok. I have too many to bring them all in or move into the greenhouse so the tougher ones we put in the barn and cover. I hang them off of one of those portable cloths hanger thingies. then throw a blanket over them. It's worked for the last several winters that have been so unusually cold for us Floridians.

mjsponies, I had most of my orchids in the garage. LOL They were my first priority. Lost quite a few of them too. Ran out of room. We lost all our ixora shrubs around the pool encloser. All plumeria are gone too. I keep looking to see if they will come from bottom. So far, no luck. Our lychee tree was just starting to come back after last year's free, but this past winter was just too much. It's a goner, along with kumquat and orange tree. Carombola is sending up one branch. So maybe next year we will have carombola. Those were on east side of house. The grapefruit and tangerine tree are OK. They are on the west side. This past year just knocked the wind out of me. I'm so sad that all my plants are gone. Right now I don't know if I'll replace any of them.

And if I remember correctly, you had such beautiful, large hoyas. That is sad.

I am replacing mine with the ones you see in the big box stores. I'm not going all out to order the really rare ones again.

I'm not going too crazy this time either. I have a few small cuttings from a RR last spring that were in my bathroom. I just moved them outside to shelves under the lanai roof. They face East and get the morning sun. So far, so good. This coming winter , if we get another freeze warning, I'll have to drag them into the bathtub. I'm not looking forward to that though.

I think you will find many of the posters you used to see here, over at the cubit site.
