General Information and Care: Dischidia ovata ‘Round Leaf’, also known as the Watermelon Dischidia, is a wonderful vine in a terrarium. This species does best as a cascading species, meaning it should be planted higher up in a terrarium and allowed to grow down. There are very few other cascading species that do well in terrariums. The leaves on this species are typically an inch or less in diameter. They are also a beautiful hue of green with gorgeous white markings which is how it came about being called the Watermelon Dischidia. Additionally, when the leaves are grown under bright light, they get a fantastic red hue to them. This species stands out compared to the normal D. ovata due to the fact that the leaves are all extremely round.
