Growing Dischidia milnei

Growing Dischidia milnei is not that difficult, but does require almost daily attention.  I grow the plant mounted on a sphagnum moss covered tube.  I need to submerge the plant daily to ensure that it receives enough water.  It no longer works to spray the plant as the leaves have ‘shingled’ the tube and repels any attempt to wet it by misting or spraying.  If I can keep it looking good throughout the rest of the winter, I will sell it in the spring as I simply don’t have the time to give it a daily soaking any longer.
