Dischidia is a small tropical succulent plant that grows epiphytically, often found trailing along supports like tree trunks or branches. Similar to Hoya plants, Dischidia stems may sprout roots along the nodes to absorb water and nutrients and provide added stability. One commonly known variety of Dischidia is the Dischidia nummularia, also called "String of Nickels" due to its small, round, coin-shaped leaves that resemble long strings of coins. These plants are often found on tree trunks, resembling hanging necklaces along branches, and are frequently cultivated despite their inconspicuous yellowish-white flowers. Dischidia is known to attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds.
