What an unbelievable coincidence! I received cuttings of that plant over the summer from my friend Dee, and it is getting ready to bloom any day now. I was also going to post pictures here to get an id; now I don't have to. It is a great little plant and grows like a weed in the plant room. I suspected that it was a Dischida, and now I know what kind
ohhh I like the coloring on the leaves. How much sun can this one take? Where most of my Hoya's live in the summer it gets periods of sun/shade/sun/shade through out the day. Here's a pic from last year, we've made new structures to hang them from. Kinda like a Swing Set on Steriods but I don't have a pic of it yet. I'll take one later and post. Not all of them are there in this picture.

those on the Monkeypod get sun early morning and late afternoon...when the sun is low. Midday they have the canopy of the branches...but a LOT of light!!! I have seen them growing in a Botanical Garden on Oahu in fairly deep shade, but very indirect bright light... Monkeypods are also called Raintrees... if you Google them and read about their simbiotic relationship to epiphytes you will understand....
I cannot believe that the cuttings I gave you is getting ready to bloom, when
I cannot get any of my plants to bloom for me and for you!
I am so jealous. I would like some cuttings of your plants at some point.
I am hoping that the weather will be good on the 21st so I can make a
road trip to see all the babies! Kim may also join me. Keep your fingers
crosses that there won't be any storm on that day! Take care!
ohhhhhhhh that is way cool ! now I'm going to be tapping my fingers waiting for it to bloom. I had read that the blooms were small, I don't care...I like little odd blooms.
This is the bloom from String of Hearts.- Ceropegia woodii).(not a Hoya I know)
Ya gotta look for em or they blend right in the the foliage.
MJ, very cute little blossom on that string of hearts. I wish I had the equipment and more importantly the know-how to photograph really tiny objects - there are so many fascinating things that are too small to see and appreciate!
That photo took me dragging out the tripod. And about 6 shots to get the one that was the "least" fuzziest. I'm on the hunt for a new camera.
I think you got an outstanding photo of the bloom and leaves of Dischida ovata., and I really hope mine gives me blooms !
I know this is an old post (but new for this newcomer!) Dischidia ovata is my all-time favorite Dischidia. It's the one that got me started seriously collecting Dischidias a few years ago. I've had 3 different clones of it myself (though I lost the very small leaf one, dang it!) Now I have one that has thinner leaves with very distinct markings...
...and it blooms regularly for me...
The other clone I've struggled to get started over and over - it's from Tanya Livschulz's collection and it has succulent rounder leaves. It's finally taken hold for me this summer, though I may have trouble with it this winter - I guess we'll see. I'll try to get a photo of that one and post it. If anyone knows a source for the little leaf clone, please let me know!
