Family: Apocynaceae

This Hoya relative has succulent, soft green, 1 inch rounded leaves turning grayish with age with new foliage emerging pinkish in color. Has ivory white flowers. Easy. Outdoors provide it with filtered light, indoors a bright area. Good drainage is essential. With its cascading form, it makes an easy to grow hanging basket. Can also be used in a large terrarium. This unidentified Dischidia was named after Geri Ham Young, a succulent collector in Honolulu, by Hoya specialist Ted Green of Hawaii. It could be related to Dischidia oiantha, whose leaves are more elongated. We have seen this plant sold elsewhere, likely in error, as the species Dischidia oiantha and as Dischidia milnei. USDA Zones 9b - 11.
