 As similar as they may look, the "Watermelon Hoya" is not a Hoya at all, but is the adorable cousin, the Dischidia. These adorable plants have trailing vines with gorgeous leaves that leave little to question how the Dischidia Ovata earned it's name of Watermelon Dischidia. 

These smaller oval shaped leaves are a pretty shade of green with white stripes that somewhat resemble a watermelon. The quite small, dainty flowers are a green-yellow with purple lines. They add a little bit of a unique flare to any house plant collection. 

Care

Light: Bright indirect. Avoid too much direct sun or the leaves will burn.

Water: Water dischidia when the soil surface starts to dry. The plant is fairly drought tolerant, so you don't need to be alarmed if you forget to water it now and again. 

Temperature/Humidity: 40%-60% humidity. Indoor houseplant. Avoid cold draughts.

Soil/Potting: For soil we suggest a lightweight, fast-draining potting mix. As Dischidia are epiphytes, they are well suited to growing out of a soil mix, this plant will do well with a light potting soil mix with some perlite or sand to increase drainage. Dischidia like to be root bound, they need to be repotted very seldom. Do not let sit in excess water.

Care Tips: Dischidia are sometimes considered as slow growers, but with correct humidity, watering and appreciation, growth will occur in vigorous intervals.
