    I purchased my Dischidia ruscifolia plant in 2008 as a small hanging basket plant, and I fell in love at first sight with the foliage! This plant has small heart-shaped leaves hanging in pendant form. Tiny white blooms emerge singly at the leaf nodes. The foliage turns red when grown in high light.
