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!

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!

Lovely retusa

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!
