Hoya retusa is an evergreen flowering plant native to India. The plant consists of long and thin vine-like stems. A large number of green, thin cylindrical leaves grow on the stems. A mature leaf is around 5 inches in length with a tiny heart-shaped crown at the top. Tiny white fragrant flowers with reddish coronas grow to beautify the plant throughout the months from spring to fall.
They love bright, indirect light – but if you’re in doubt, remember they can survive in low light conditions.
The key component in regards to watering your hoya retusa is soil drainage. It’s susceptible to root rot so it’s essential that the water can freely flow through the planter and out the bottom.
Hoya Retusa are one of the easiest plants to care for. They’re practically indestructible. It’s commonly known as the grass leafed hoya due to flat, slim foilage. They sit best in hanging planters, so you can have them trailing anywhere in the home.
Safe for cats and dogs.
