It is definitely a dischidia, looks like D. nummularia, but I am no expert with this genus. Keep it in higher light and grow only as an epiphyte. They like to be a little drier. I grow a few dischidia's in the viv and they do great.

It's most likely the variegated form of Dischidia nummularia as previously stated. It can be a bit slow to root without some moss or something similar at the base to help get it started. It will root eventually though. Just make sure to keep the humidity up. Try not to soak the actual plant though. This particular variety rots rather easily.

Some better Dischidia viv candidates are D sp Geri, D oiantha, D bengalensis, D ruscifolia and D hirsuta.

Good luck.

It still hasn't rooted but its gotta be doing good since the two cuttings have one new leaf and a bloom each one has already opened up.
