Deets: If you set eyes on a Hoya Retusa for the first time, you would never think it belonged to the Hoya family and specifically the Magnoliopsida class .
Even though Hoyas do offer an incredible variety of plant looks, the Hoya Retusa still stands out with it’s flat, narrow awkward foliage that barely looks like leaves. These plants also flower like most Hoyas, baring the particularity of it flowering in singles instead of bunches like its cousins. The flowers have a classic star-shaped creamy and pink look with a lemon-like scent. Since it is native to India and is a tropical plant, it dislikes big temperature fluctuations and direct sunlight and will bloom best at low temperatures.
It is actually a quite low maintenance hardy plant.
You can place it pretty much anywhere in the home and it can be grown either in a pot, a hanging basket, or even trained up a trellis with a little effort and persistence
