Dischidia nummularia 'String of nickels'


Dischidia nummularia is a tropical plant that grows naturally as an epiphyte- this means that it grows directly on other tropical trees (in a similar way to orchids) In the wild it is found in India, China, Indonesia, Loas, Thailand, Vietnam and Australia. ‘The String of nickels’ has small fleshy circular leaves that run along long central stems, so called because they resemble coins. The leaves themselves range from deep green to a light olive colour. It is a trailing/climbing plant that comes in its own hanging plant pot.


LOVES- As a succulent this plant enjoys a bright but indirect position away from constant direct sunlight. Water once every week on average reducing throughout winter, allowing the soil to dry out slightly in-between. Ensure the soil is evenly moist but never soggy.

HATES- Dry air- as a tropical succulent this plant is used to high humidity. Mist frequently to keep it happy.
