The leaves are so cute that you would like to put them in a shaker and add milk! These adorable little cousins to the Hoya have nice trailing vines with pretty leaves that leave little question how the Dischidia ovata earned its common name of Watermelon/Melon Dischidia. These smaller oval-shaped leaves are a pretty shade of green with white stripes that somewhat resemble a watermelon. The quite small, dainty flowers are a green-yellow with purple lines. They add a little bit of a unique flare to any house plant collection with their distinct leaves and are sure to grab attention. The plant trails with the help of small aerial roots growing along with each node.
The Dischidias are easy-to-please peeps. They are low-maintenance plants perfectly suitable for beginners and lazy folks.
