Hoya retusa - Grass-Leaved Hoya
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 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!

Such an interesting Hoya! Came in great condition, perked right up with a good water and a couple days of light. Everything I get from Pistils is so well-packaged, thank you!
A five star! Retusa came in perfect shape, and quickly. Worth the money, too.
my hoya arrived (across the country) safe & sound--I'll definitely be ordering from Pistils again!
