this actually started in another forum because I want to know if anyone can help me make this grow.
I hesitate to put it in soil as the friends plant I recieved it from 17years ago was grown only in water. but it has stayed the same size or close to it for all these 17years.
Also I do not know what kind it is so if you can help with either question I would appreciate all the help I can get. Note the pop can is there for sizing. This is it's bad side but I wanted you to see the roots. I moved it to this bigger jar about 2 years ago thinking maybe that was the problem.
It looks like hoya carnosa and you're right GL it shouldnt be left in water. My reference book says "grow in a coarse, open medium that is free draining !!
I would certainly get it into soil, which should help it put on some growth - mine make about a couple of feet each year and have to wound round supporting wires to keep it in check. If you are nervous about losing it, take some cutting - they are easy. Simply cut off some of the long stems (semi ripe) and put them in a closed propagator with gentle bottom heat. Dont let them be exposed to direct sunlight (they wilt pretty easy). Good luck
