Q.When To Plant A Rope Plant Cutting?

Zone 53105 | Anonymous added on September 26, 2022 | Answered

I received a cutting from a friend. It’s about 6″ long. I’ve had it in water for approximately 8 weeks now. It has developed one tiny root around 1/8″ long and one leaf. Can I plant in soil yet or should I wait? Should I cut the top above the leaf or leave it alone?

I suggest planting it because if it goes too long in water, it will have a hard time transitioning to soil culture. Is this a hoya? If so, use well draining soil for succulents. Also, leave any tendrils, as that is where the leaves form.
