Gigi, a Dischidia Geri, is actually a distant cousin to the Hoya family, which includes the likes of Harold, our Hoya Linearis. Gigi is sometimes referred to as an Ant Plant because in the wild she's actually natural habitat for ants.
Native to Asia, Gigi is an epiphyte, which means she's usually found growing up other trees, or small cracks in rocks.
Gigi, Dischidia Geri
Gigi prefers bright indirect light without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
