Dischidia minor is a unique and captivating plant native to Malaya and Australia. Also known as Kadul and groundcover, the low-growing vine or creeper can reach a height of 2ft and is perfect for using as an ornamental foliage. It has pendent stems, and small button-like, silver-grey leaves, along with inflorescence that is an umbel of small white tubular flowers with a ring of sparse hairs inside. After the blooms have faded, masses of fluffy seeds develop.
Preferring a semi-shade position, Dischidia minor is an epiphyte and loves moderate water. It is also known for living in various environments, such as on paperbark trees, moss or bark, terrariums, and hanging baskets or pots. For drainage, the pot should have organic matter and coarse sand, and it should be semi-shaded. Bright light is suitable for the plant, but it should be kept out of direct sun.
In USDA zones 9-11, caring for a Dischidia minor includes watering, feeding, and misting. Water the plant moderately and only when the soil has dried out. Liquid feeding once a month with half strength is advised, and it's also recommended to mist the plant once or twice a week. In colder regions, it is best to grow the plant in a pot so that it can be moved indoors during winter.
