Epiphytic Dischidia Plaque
Our Epiphytic Dischidia Plaques are like tiny swatches of foliage, cut right out of the jungle. Epiphytes are plants that grow on other plants rather than out of the ground, and Dischidia is a well-loved genus in this category, known for delicate waxy leaves and vining growth habit. To make our Epiphytic Dischidia Mounts, stem cuttings are rooted directly into sphagnum moss, anchored on a sturdy wooden board. Unlike other mounts which also have soil, these plants are growing entirely epiphytically, just like they can be found in their native jungle habitats. Fitted with a metal loop for easy hanging on the wall, our Dischidia Epiphyte Mounts are beautiful standalone pieces and look even better in sets of two or more.
Dischidias thrive in bright indirect light. To water, simply soak your mount in a sink or basin until thoroughly saturated. Includes detailed care instructions.
We carry several species of Dischidia – such as Dischidia ruscifolia, Dischidia oiantha and Dischidia ionantha variegatat – and the images are intended to show the variety in appearance in these plants. Expect plenty of natural variation, and feel free to include any preferences with your order.
Dimensions: 9.5” x 2.5”
I had never even seen a picture of a Epiphytic Dischidia Plaque before.....I have been an avid plant lover for over 50 years.....this little Gem is just amazing.....it is put together very well and it already is showing new growth....arrived perfectly healthy and strong...have purchased from Pistil's before and I certainly will again. In fact I think I will purchase one of these lovelies for my daughter who is taking care of our plants during our vacation!!! Many thanks!! Candi Bostian
