Very nice Chrossandra, different colour than mine, is it the annual or perennial variety.With the climate that you have you are going to enjoy gardening.

This is Perennial variety , yes the climate is very favourable for the plants (though I have little space so can't put more quantity).

I am struggling with Hoyas ... if anyone has any expereince ?

Izhar , the Hoyas are stunned ! no new leaves and existing new nodes and buds have dropped off. I think the pot 3inch. is too small (maybe). I am watering it daily now to avoid dry conditions.

No daily watering!!!! they dont like wet feet... pot size is no issue, they are epiphytic in nature (most of them)... just keep the conditions humid around leaves and stem..
