Plant care

Don'T water this exotic plant Dischidia pectenoides too often, once every two or three days is plenty. Let the soil go 'Nearly' dry in between watering sessions. Use a properly porous medium, such as orchid mix. This plant thrives under high humidity. Bright, indirect, filtered light is optimal. When placed in a terrarium, the amount of light should be medium to intense. Under intense light, the the leaves will turn more red. When dry, the leaves will become more succulent 'Harder'.
