Dischidia nummularia, or String of Nickels, are normally found growing in masses on branches in trees and are native to areas including India, China, Indonesia, Thailand, and other surrounding areas. As houseplants, they are normally grown in hanging baskets. These less common cousins of Hoyas are very easy to grow and offer an unusual touch to any houseplant collection.
These plants are epiphytes, which means that they grow on trees in nature. Because of this, you should never plant Dischidia nummularia in normal potting soil! Always use a very chunky potting mix or another airy, loose mix.
Dischidia prefers filtered sunlight, or at the bare minimum, bright indirect light. Some direct sun is perfectly fine. But take care not to place this plant in a location that has too many hours of direct sun.
Water: Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry between waterings
Pets: Non-toxic, pet friendly!
Growing in a 6" hanging basket.
