Dischidia Care

Light: Provide bright, indirect light for your Dischidia. It appreciates plenty of natural light but should be protected from direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate leaves. A north or east-facing window with filtered sunlight is ideal.

Temperature: Maintain a warm and consistent temperature. Dischidia prefers temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.

Pot and Soil: Plant your Dischidia in a well-draining orchid or epiphytic mix. These plants are epiphytic, meaning they naturally grow on other surfaces like tree branches, so a lightweight, well-draining mix is essential. Ensure the pot has good drainage.

Watering: Keep the soil slightly moist but not waterlogged. Water sparingly, but thoroughly, allowing the top inch of the potting mix to dry out between waterings. Watering from the bottom of the pot can be beneficial. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as they are susceptible to rot when wet.

Humidity: Dischidia enjoys higher humidity levels, so misting the plant regularly or using a humidity tray can help. Grouping it with other plants can also create a microclimate with increased humidity.

Fertilization: Feed your Dischidia sparingly. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Fertilize every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer) and reduce or stop fertilization during the dormant period (fall and winter).
