Dischidia ruscifolia

This is likely the most widely available Dischidia, and also goes by the name “Million Hearts’.  The leaves stay very small, about 1/3 -1/2 inch, cascading out of a basket to make a showy robust plant.  The flowers are small and white, and occur singly on the main stem.  This species is from the Phillipines and enjoys high humidity and good drainage.  It can be grown in a basket or mounted epiphytically.
