We adore this wonderful hanging houseplant, Dischidia Oiantha Variegata for its beautiful shape and leaves. A native of the rainforests of China and Asia, dischidia oiantha variegata is an epiphyte, making its home in the branches of a tree it uses as its host.
It has light green leaves with silver variegation, its stems forming roots along nodes to absorb nutrients and water. In the rainforest, the stems trail down from the branches of the tree that is its home.
Of course, as a small hanging houseplant, it doesn’t need a tree to sit on, but we do provide a wooden block that you can soak in water when your plant is dry. This will provide enough water for your Dischidia Oiantha to be a happy houseplant.
This small hanging houseplant is fairly drought tolerant, so you don’t need to worry if you forget to water it from time to time…..it’s a very easy-going plant and is great if you are a beginner to houseplants. One of those mini house plants with a big personality!
This Dischidia is a real gem and just one of the many Dischidias available - have a look at Dischidia Pectanoides which is also great for beginners. You will soon want to start a Dischidia collection!
This little plant makes an amazing gift - we’ll include a free, handwritten card with your delivery! You just need to add your gift message at the checkout and we’ll do the rest! No paperwork included either!
