The Dischidia is a part of the Milkweed family and native to tropical areas of China and India. In the wild ants live inside the balloon-like organs produced by the plant. They bring in nutrients which fend off predatory insects. Dischidia can be a lovely plant to grow in the home, they add a lovely brightness to any room. 

How to care for your dischidia

Light: Keep in indirect light, these plants grow wild in low light situations below a thick rain forest canopy.

Humidity: They require high humidity. Mist the plant every day.

Temperature: They like warmth, about 20 degrees C.
