Can someone shed light on what this plant is. I got it several years ago as a small cutting on Ebay. The seller didn't know what it was either but I thought the leaves were sort of cute...... The leaves used to be a nice uniform green. I think lighting/water had something to do with the spots. Leaves are hard! Vine has grown slowly but then I only water infrequently.

Was too embarrased by state of my plant so I clipped a few vines and stuck in new pot with repotted plant. Maybe this gives you a better idea of what this plant looks like. Thumb of 2013-05-12/Alchemist9/e218a6

Sorry that I can't help you to identify the plant....but the leaves are very cute. Smiling Did it bloom?

Nope, never got a bloom from it but roots seemed nice and healthy when I re-rooted so I'll just carry on as before.

Looks like Dischidia oiantha to me.

It's all about choices.
Totally agree with mj! D. oiantha. Flowers are TINY...white (as I remember). Sweet plant to grow... Dischidia are cousins of hoya...first cousins actually....growing conditions very similar.
Leap. The net will appear.

I'll have to look up that plant. I always thought it looked like it could be related to hoya which is probably why I liked it. Smiling I think its a super cool little plant. It was really pretty before the leaves got all the sores. I'll pay a little more attention and see if I can't give it a healthy glow again.

It likes shadier rather than sunnier...maybe that will help the sores....

I found it to be fussier than other Dischidia's. Water thoroughly let dry out, but mist the leaves frequently. Bright light, but NO sun.

Actually I thought it was sitting beside an East window when those sore appeared but I can't swear to that. I'm really goo at letting it dry out (too good maybe) but I will try misting. Because neither I, nor the seller knew what it as I tried not to hover.............and hey is alive.

Rolling on the floor laughing Well you've got half the battle there !!! I can't tell you how many plants I've killed trying to figure out what they wanted/needed.
