The Dischidia (Dis-chin-dia) Pectinoide (Pec-tin-noid) is an eye-catching and very interesting climbing plant that was first discovered in South-East Asia.

They are related to the milkweed plant and creates a similar sap.

With a beautiful 30cm drop and comes in a 14cm hanging pot with detachable hooks so can be hung or placed on a shelf. 💚

 

Quick Care Tips:

Light: Needs indirect sunlight for at least half the day but will grow in a low lit room. 

Water: Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem. They love a humid environment so mist regularly or place in a high humid room such as a bathroom or kitchen.

Toxicity: Not known to be toxic, but the sap created by the leaves can cause dermatitis flare-ups. As with all our plants, we recommend keeping them out of reach of tiny humans and furry creatures, just in case!

Interesting Facts: 

They can grow red flowers along their stems all year round if they're happy. 

In the wild, ants will take shelter in their leaves and flowers. Their excrement provides nutrition for the plant in return. 

They are not part of the carnivorous plant family, but they will absorb any dead insects in their leaves or flowers.

Propagating:

Fairly easy to propagate, and can be done any time of the year; either place trailing stems back in the pot so they can root into the soil and make the plant look fuller, or take a stem cutting and place it on top of loose soil and lightly press down so the leaves can start rooting. Or place in water and change weekly until roots appear. 

Things to look out for:

Overwatering: Despite loving a humid environment this plant gets most of its water from the air, so be sure not to overwater. Signs can include leaves turning brown, yellow and falling off in large amounts. 

Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look empty and shrivelled/dried up.

Other common names for this plant:

- Pebble Beach
- Button Orchid
