We love the elegant trailing form of this wonderful hanging houseplant.


Dischidia Ovata is a very interesting small hanging houseplant that will produce small red flowers and loves a steamy kitchen or bathroom. Dischidia Ovata is a cousin of the Hoya and gets its species name “ovata” because of its ovate, or egg-shaped, leaves.


Dischidia Ovata is an air plant, an epiphyte needing very little care and attention - it only needs sunlight, air and a little water to survive!


It doesn’t require soil or compost, it will tolerate very dry soil, or simply a piece of wood or shell to perch on.
