Dischidia Parasitica is a vigorous growing vine with boat shaped leaves. Very easy to grow and it is a really good bloomer! A lot of Dischidias don't have the most showy flowers, but this plant has very cute fuchsia colored flowers, and the buds never fully open up! They look like little bulbs or dildos.
Grow Dischidia in medium to bright filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors. Dischidia also needs high humidity. Mist the plant every day or place the container on a saucer filled with pebbles and water. The water will evaporate and moisten the air while the pebbles will hold the sensitive roots out of the water.They need warm humid conditions ((similar to bromeliads and orchids)
Water Dischidia when the soil surface starts to dry. The plant is fairly drought tolerant . Dischidia plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the
Plant Dischidia in a loose, well-draining soil designed for epiphytic plants; it is usually composed of coconut husk or shredded bark. Dischidia like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.
Dischidia doesn't really need fertilizer but you should change the planting media every year.
It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant
Hoyas like medium to bright indirect light. It detests direct sunlight and dark corners!
Hoya plants are very sensitive to over watering. To avoid this always keep a Hoya in a pot with a drainage hole. Use well drained soil or coco peat and perlite mix to make sure the excess water gets drained out. Water the Hoya only when the soil is completely dry. If it is moist you can let it be for a couple of days before checking on it again. It is better to under water than over water your Hoya plant!
Don't cut the long tendrils of your Hoya as the leaves and flowers develop from these!
