Dischidia Parasitica 'Philippines' is a stunning, quick-growing climbing vine plant that will grow small tubular pink flowers when it gets rootbound . Dischidia grows into a wiry curtain of long, pointed leaves when allowed to trail, but the plant will naturally seek opportunities to climb.
This plant is epiphytic, and in the wild will grow in the crooks of trees. As a houseplant, it prefers to grow in a chunky bark mix and stay relatively rootbound.
Dischidia thrives in bright, direct sunlight and will grow faster if provided with a trellis or something else to climb. Dischidia Parasitica has semi-succulent leaves that store water, and become very thin when the plant is thirsty. This plant is more tolerant of under-watering than over-watering.
