Product Information

This climbing Asian succulent is currently taking the internet by storm and itís not difficult to see why. With its trailing strands of perfectly positioned, succulent leaves, it makes the perfect subject for blogs, vlogs and all manner of social media sharing.

Naturally at home on trees, the tropical String of Nickels plant gains a foothold in cracks and crevices and creeps along branches, hanging down in draping curtains of green - a truly spectacular sight in the wild and fascinating when grown as a houseplant.

Also known as the Button Orchid or Ant Plant, the flowers are tiny and really rather insignificant when compared to the thick grey-green leaves which look great spilling over container edges as a houseplant or as a temporary garden plant (remember to bring it in when cold weather threatens though).

Supplied as an established plant in a 14cm pot, ready to make an instant impression. Easy to grow, plants can trail up to 3m so Dischidia makes a perfect candidate for a hanging basket where it can trail down in front of a bright window.

Note Decorative pot in images is for display purposes only and is not supplied.

Top Tips

String of nickels benefits from daily misting or setting above a pebble tray of water to raise the humidity - this is how the plant gets its moisture.

Care Information

  • Grow in indirect sun or light shade. Bright sun will turn the leaves a shade of bronze.
  • From late spring to early summer, plants can be moved outdoors (but out of bright, direct sun), but will need bringing in if temperatures drop below 10įC.
  • Dischidia needs high humidity so mist the plant every day or place the container on a saucer filled with pebbles and water.
  • Allow the soil to dry out before you water the plant and they dislike wet roots - plants are designed to get moisture only from the surrounding air and cannot tolerate boggy soil. When the bark medium is dry to the touch, submerge the container in water until air bubbles are gone.
    In winter, cut watering back to once a month or if leaves begin to look shrivelled.
  • Plants can be trimmed lightly if they get out of hand and the cuttings can be turned into new plants.
  • If repotting, use an open mix that drains easily and allows air to get to the roots is ideal Ė orchid compost is often used or a peat/pearlite mix. Pot only into dry soil and allow the plants to shrivel or start growing again before watering to prevent roots from rotting.
