The retusa has very interesting flat narrow foliage that can vine or trail. Unlike its other hoya cousins it flowers in singles not clusters. The flowers are pink and lemon scented. Hoyas hail from India so it does't love temperature fluctuations, but other than that they are pretty low maintenance. 

Light: Bright indirect light is best for retusa however it can tolerate lower light conditions.

Water: Allow to dry most of the way between watering, they prefer more humidity which can be difficult in Calgary. Humidity trays, humidifiers or grouping your plants together can help raise the ambit humidity.Pets: Pet friendly

Note** This plant would be great shown off in a hanging pot but they don't really like being repotted very often.
