Melaleucas are commonly known as "Paperbarks" in the tree forms and "Honey Myrtles" in the smaller forms. These names refer to the flaky bark of many species and the nectar produced in the flowers. Melaleucas can be propagated by either seed or cuttings. However, to maintain desirable characteristics of a particular plant, vegetative propagation must be used. This also applies to propagation of named cultivars.

Dischidia minor, Dischidia nummularia, Kadul, Button Orchid

Dischidia minor, Dischidia nummularia

Kadul, Button Orchid
Family: Apocynaceae    (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Origin: Malaya, Australia
USDA Plant Hardiness MapGroundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Climbing by attaching its roots to the host tree, this epiphyte can reach a height 9 ft. It has pendent stems, and small button-like, silver-grey leaves. The inflorescence is an umbel of small white tubular flowers with a ring of sparse hairs inside. Masses of fluffy seeds develop after the blooms have faded. It prefers a heavily shaded position in a drought, and frost free area. Fresh seed is sometimes used to propagate this plant, or by division in warm, and moist greenhouse conditions. It lives on many types of trees but mostly paperbark trees (Melaleuca species) on rainforest borders. This little vine has cute little coin shaped leaves and can be variegated with cream and gray. It can be grown as a hanging basket or pot, or on moss or bark. It likes bright light but not direct sun over the plant. The mix needs to be kept moderately dry between waterings. They don't like too much water and misting the plant once or twice a week should do the job. Liquid feeding once a month with half strength is adequate. It is also good for terrariums.
