I'm mostly into cacti, aloes, and other heat tolerant succulents, and more recently hoyas and some tropicals. Phoenix, AZ. USDA zone 9b, heat zone 11.

I didn't have a perfect pot for my Hoya 'Chelsea' starter, so I made one. It's white Sculpey, which I shaped around a large shot glass. I "glazed" the inside with UV resin, to make sure the clay doesn't stain from the potting medium.

If you don't mind my asking, where do you purchase your Hoyas?

@aprilblue9 wherever I can find them! 😂 They're sooo hard to find in Phoenix bc they're not thought of as desert plants, but actually some varieties do great here. I've found carnosa and pubicalyx at Home Depot, compacta at Lowe's (with the LiveTrends plants), and the rest have either been purchased on Etsy (mostly from California Tropicals, but a couple have been from random individuals selling their own propagated plants) or received in trade from people all over the country (mostly FL).
