I was having problems with the round trellis for my Hoya cumingiana because the vines are too stiff to properly wrap around the metal wire. It looked like a hot mess, so I carefully removed the trellis and let all of the vines hang loose. I had no idea how long the vines were! When I stretch them out, they can reach the bottom of my window sill, hanging from the top of the window.
The plant doesn’t look like it suffered too much from being unwrapped, but it did lose a few leaves here and there. The almost naked parts of the vines is the result of a couple of spider mite infestations. Luckily, I haven’t seen any spider mites since fall.
Now it’s easier to appreciate the flowers, too!
