Dischidia nummularia plant Care and Instruction
These tropical epiphytes are generally low-maintenance and easy to care for. They are most commonly grown indoors as houseplants because they cannot tolerate cold temperatures or frost, but they can be grown outdoors year-round in climates that are consistently warm. They enjoy consistent moisture and are prolific growers in the right environment. It is recommended that strings of nickels are repotted annually so they do not become rootbound, which can hinder growth because their roots need plenty of aeration in order to thrive. A string of nickels does not require pruning, but because they grow quickly, you can trim and shape them if they grow too large.
Light – Low-light north- or east-facing window.
Place – Indoors or Outdoors
Water – Keep the potting medium evenly moist but be careful to avoid waterlogging the roots; they should never sit in water for extended periods of time.
Fertilizer – String of nickels do not require regular fertilizing outside of ensuring that their potting medium is rich in organic matter.
Temperature – Normal
