Also called 'String of Melons' because of its stripy green and white leaves, the Dischidia Ovata is a climbing plant that will happily wrap its vines around a trellis (or any near by furniture!)
If you are a fan of Hoya then you will enjoy having this plant in your collection, it is similar in appearance to a Hoya but has slightly thinner, more delicate looking leaves. The care requirements are also alike as the Dischidia Ovata is content if you leave it alone somewhere bright and humid, only watering when its soil has almost completely dried out.
Light: Tolerant of medium light to bright indirect light, however too much light can cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Water: During growing season wait to water until the soil has almost dried out. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot.
Food: Feed lightly during the growing season but not during the winter.
Humidity: Is content in a normal household humidity but prefers a higher humidity.
Plants all arrived safe and healthy. Beautifully packaged as always! New growth on my ovata watermelon already (had it about a week)🍉 customer service is second to none, and plant sticker collecting has now become a thing 😅
