Plant Know-How: Hoya retusa
Light: Hoya retusa does best when grown in medium to bright indirect light. Hoya retusa will not bloom in medium indirect light, so if you'd like yours to bloom we recommend bright indirect light!
Water: Because of its thin leaves Hoya retusa requires water slightly more frequently than its more succulent leaved relatives. We recommend watering your Hoya retusa when about 1/2 of the soil has gone dry. If your plant is mounted it will need to be watered at least once a week, possibly more depending on the amount of light it receives.
Did you know? Like all other Hoya, Hoya retusa flowers! Unlike most Hoya though it doesn't produce a cluster of flowers. Instead it produces a single flower from each peduncle. The flowers have a lovely jasmine-like scent!
