Dischidia spp.

Dischidia Plant Features

Dischidias are uncommon, exotic, but easy-to-grow houseplants. Most varieties trail, making them wonderful choices for hanging baskets if you're looking for a no-fuss plant to hang in your window or near your desk. Most varieties of dischidia have interesting leaves that may be puffy or fleshy and good for holding water during times of drought. Smaller varieties are excellent houseplants for terrariums.

Dischidia Growing Instructions

Grow dischidia in medium to bright light to keep the plant happy. In the North, some direct sun on the leaves is okay, but in Southern climates, filtered light is better to prevent possible sunburn. 

Water dischidia when the soil surface starts to dry. The plant is fairly drought tolerant, so you don't need to be alarmed if you forget to water it now and again. 

Dischidia is not intended for animal or human consumption.
