Rattle Pod Vine (Dischidia major)
Dischidia major (commonly called "Rattle Skulls”) is a climbing or hanging Malayan plant with two types of leaves: circular glossy green leaves and leaves than form larger hollow pods. These pods serve as protection and nutrition for ants in the wild, who in return pollinate the plant's flowers for mutual benefit (a phenomenon known in the plant world as "myrmecophily").
Dischidias grow well indoors, or in shade conditions outdoors. They require perfect drainage, so are best planted in a free draining mix suited to orchids. Water sparingly during the colder months to avoid root rot.The plants we have for sale are growing in 90mm pots with stems that are 30-50cm long. You will either receive the same plant in the photo or one of equivalent growth from the same batch.
We deliver our plants locally and interstate, except for Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory for quarantine reasons. Plants that require shipping are posted on Mondays to minimise the time in transit. All other items will be posted within 2 business days of receiving your order
