Dischidia ruscifolia variagata
Dischidia ruscifolia variegata is a beautiful trailing plant that originates from Southeast Asia. It grows naturally in tropical forests, often in the crevices of trees and rocks.
Its heart-shaped leaves, which give it the nickname "million hearts" are small and fleshy, arranged alternately along thin stems. The leaves are variegated, with shades of green and creamy white, creating an attractive contrast. The plant also produces small white flowers, which are fragrant and appear in clusters.
This plant has a trailing habit and looks beautiful in hanging baskets or when trained to climb a trellis. It's a great choice for adding interest to a room or for creating a jungle-inspired vibe. Dischidia ruscifolia variegata is a low-maintenance and attractive plant that's sure to add some tropical flair to your home.
When it comes to care, Dischidia ruscifolia variegata prefers bright, indirect light and moderate humidity. Water it thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, and be sure to avoid overwatering as it can be sensitive to root rot. It's best to use a well-draining potting mix that's rich in organic matter.
