With care similar to Hoyas, Dischidia ovata or "Watermelon Dischidia" have interesting foliage and are easy-going epiphytes that make amazing mounted plants.
Place in pot with drainage hole. Allow soil to dry out about 2/3 of the way down between waterings.
Bright indirect light. Will tolerate some morning direct sun.
Dischidia are epiphytes, meaning they don’t need soil to grow. This makes them a great for mounting! If potting yours, go for a mix w/orchid bark to help with drainage.
