Hoya cumingiana rescue

Have you ever felt sorry for a plant, feeling like it’s trapped on a trellis that’s way too small and claustrophobic, even though it’s.. just a plant? This Hoya cumingiana has outgrown its trellis way too long ago. Its vines are fairly stiff and won’t bend around the small trellis without snapping and some of the vines were half snapped around a tight corner before I bought it. I felt genuinely sorry for it. So I found this other small, round trellis in my stack of plant stuff and spent half an hour untangling the vines. I then gently attached it to the round trellis with orchid clamps. Now they’re about as free as they can be.
