The name of this Dischidia is sp camiguin Island.On a other site it states this one smells like a oncidium orchid.

Pretty! It reminds me of the flowers on my D. oiantha Schltr. that has large flower clusters, though they have no fragrance I can detect. Can you post a photo of the leaves?

Hi Denise
I have really fallen in love with how this Dischidia grows.
Close up view of the leaves.

I think I am going to add another imbricate growing Dischidia to my collection, maybe once I find out how those bubble envelope cuttings held up. I really like the look of your plant.

I have Dischidia imbricata but it is looking kinda sad because it got attacked by thrips which took me a little while to deal with. Your plant looks vigorous and fairly large, just how big are those leaves?

Heres a photo to show the size of the leaves.Most are this size but there are a few that are a bit smaller. I checked last night if the fragrance would be stronger but none was detected.This morning it was fairly strong.

I find this plant easy to grow.I have it planted in my coir mix.I have given it a piece of wood to cling to.

I too feel inspired to a new love for Dischidia by this plant of yours. Which is lucky, since I just moved to a place with a lot of Northern windows and, since all the East and West window spots have been spoken for, shade lovers might be all that is in my future!

Oh, that is a beauty! I grow one imbricate Dischidia and it took about 4 times to get it rooted. It's much different - leaves are a bit gnarly/rough, not smooth like yours. I've tried one like or similar to yours but couldn't get it to root. Where did you get yours? Was it already a rooted plant, or did you root it as a cutting?

Hi
This Dischidia followed me home from Bangkok this spring It was a small rooted plant .I have rooted cuttings in hydro balls and I have given cuttings away to a friend and they also were able to root this one the same way.This Dischida comes from the Philippians so I never really let it get to dry before watering.It grew a lot for me this summer.It sort of looked stingy with out a lot leaves but it grew a lot of leaves around the top of the pot.It now looks nice.
