Hoya retusa

$ 18.00

Were it not for the characteristic star-shaped flowers, you might not even guess Hoya retusa was a Hoya at all! This bizarre little Hoya from India is distinct from just about everything else in the genus. It's elongated, flat and narrow leaves grow in clusters, with a wispy, almost succulent look to them. It makes a perfect choice for a hanging basket, as eventually it will grow long stems that cascade down the sides of the pot.


 Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch 
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Hoya retusa that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4" nursery pot – Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Hoya Retusa

Arrived in great shape. Well packed. Actually had 3 plants in the pot. My 2nd time ordering and probably won't be my last.

Couldn’t be happier!

My Hoya retusa arrived the other day in absolute perfect (and super cute) condition. There were no crispy or broken segments from traveling via mail; you can always tell that Pistils takes great care in packaging their plant orders.
