This is my new favourite, “Dischidia Nummularia”.
I got it because they have round leaves. (You might have already known that I like the round leaves. 😄)
After I received this plant, I thought…
No I can’t be like that. It should be stronger, bigger and have thicker leaves! 😔
I went to search “Dischidia Nummularia” on Google and Instagram.
A lot of photos show that thicker round leaf as they are succulent.
And very few but some photos show the leaves like “mentos”!!! 🤩
Very very thick and fat round which I was amazed by.
How could I make my thin, plastic looking leaves like that?
Apparently, they need full direct sun to do that and it’s quite difficult matter here in London but I will do my best.
I want to make my Dischidia healthier and thicker!
It became one of my missions.

I personally loves round leaves plant.
This has one of my favourite leaves.
Their leaves are turning to yellow and falling.
They don’t like coldness, so already are going dormant.
They are 2 years old, seedlings.
This winter will be their third one.
See you next year.
This is a fruit of my seedling of “Kedrostis Africana”, 1 year old (It’s the second Autumn, 2018). It has produced some fruits for first time. It had tiny green/yellow flowers in Summer.
All leaves are yellow and going dormant.
The seed does not germinate easily. My seeds germinated 2 out of 10.
It’s difficult to propergate by cuttings either.
However, it’s quite easy to care once it germinates.
My Uncarina Roeoesliana is slowing down and doesn’t take water so much, and seems going to sleep soon.
