Hoya retusa is an unusual house plant with narrow, succulent foliage with a delicate appearance. This wax flower tends to produce individual flowers rather than the normal cluster that one might expect from a Hoya.
Treat as a hanging plant - this looks good in a hanging pot or cascading from a shelf or windowsill.
The waxy, deep green leaves can eventually trail for up to 100cm.
Will eventually form scented flowers, provided it is kept in ideal conditions.
Native to India.
Likes medium light levels - avoid full sun.
Water regularly but never allow the plant to sit in soggy compost.
Likes warm, consistent temperatures and can't withstand very cold rooms.
Hoya plants were originally named after Thomas Hoym who was gardener to the Duke of Northumberland.
This plant is growing in a 12cm pot.
