Dischidia ruscifolia


Dischidia ruscifolia

Don't even get us started on Dischidia. They are one of our favorite type of plants. These are epiphytes which basically means they grow on trees or even rocks similar to orchids, although they still do perfectly fine in a coarse mix. These eventually produce the cutest little white flowers over time. This particular species is native to parts of the Philippines. Ships in a growers pot.


These would thrive as a mounted plant or in a hanging basket which can help mimic it's natural environment. Although they do just as nicely in a potted planter. Dischidia care is very similar to Hoya care. They like a very nice bright filtered light and can go slightly on the dry side when it comes to watering. Water every 10-14 days as the pot drys or the foliage feels limp rather than firm. When re-potting use a semi-coarse soil medium.
