Hoya retusa Dalzell 1852


Hoya retusa Dalzell 1852 is an epiphytic growing Hoya wax flower, found in India and Indonesia. The shape of the leaves of the Hoya retusa species is quite different to other Hoya plants, the leaves are thin and long like spider legs. Flowers appear singulary, not like other Hoyas in umbels of many flowers. The slightly fragrant flowers get a size of about 1,5 cm. Flowering season: December - January.
The tropical waxflower plant requires bright light, but no full sun. The potting medium should slightly dry out between waterings.
Hoya retusa is best cultivated as a hanging basket plant.
