Sedikit sumber ttg DISCHIDIA PECTINOIDES - Ant Plant
Dischidia pectinoides is a curious little climber. Some of its leaves look like tiny balloons. In nature, the balloon type leaves provide shelter for ants in exchange for carbon dioxide. It is an epiphyte vine related to Hoyas.
Dischidia pectinoides can be successfully grown indoors in bright shade, but avoid AC drafts and choose a room with plenty of light but not direct sun over the plant. They are an air plant and should not be grown in soil. Normally small, hanging baskets with an 'Orchid Bark Mix' is used. Smaller pots are preferred. The mix needs to be kept moderately dry between waterings. They don't like too much water and misting the plant once or twice a week should do the job. Liquid feeding once a month with half strength is adequate. The plant will grow better if kept above 55° all the time and should flower most of the year. The flowers are red and small.
FAMILY : Asclepiadaceae ORIGIN : Philippines SIZE : small vine LIGHT REQUIREMENTS : bright shade WATER REQUIREMENTS : let dry before watering MIN. TEMP. : cold sensitive; 55° FLOWER : throughout the year
