Anne, I have a question for you:

I got a huge Ceropegia sandersoniae from a grower last year, put it in the greenhouse and it ruled my world for many weeks. THEN, it started rotting, so I kept taking cuttings and now have a pot of rooted/growing cuttings, but they, too, are starting to rot. WHAT am I doing wrong?

Probably keeping them too wet and humid. I keep mine on the dry side. I get that problem in Winter when soil doesn't dry out very fast and algae grows on top of the soil.

I figured as much and re-planted them in half sand and half potting soil mixture - we'll see if that helps.

Thanks for your help, Anne - they now seem to be doing fine and growing.

Great .. also they will tolerate full sun but the foliage and stems will go bronze. I get my best results and flowering with morning sun and afternoon shade.
