Introducing the Dossinia marmorata, the majestic Jewel Orchid hailed as the 'Queen of Jewel Orchids.' Originating from the lush rainforests of northern Borneo, this extraordinary variety is a rare gem that captivates with its dark brownish-green foliage adorned with striking rose gold veins, resembling vibrant lightning patterns that dance across its leaves. With its awe-inspiring beauty, the Dossinia marmorata stands as one of the most stunning thick-leaved jewel orchids, making it a prized addition for orchid enthusiasts and foliage lovers alike.

Cultivating the Dossinia marmorata is a rewarding experience, given its preference for higher humidity levels of 60% or more. This humidity-loving orchid thrives when provided with a slightly moisture-retentive yet well-draining potting mix. Ensure your precious plant receives the care it deserves by using the recommended potting mix for optimal results.

Maintaining the right watering balance is crucial for the well-being of your Jewel Orchid. If you notice leaf drop, it may be a sign of under-watering. Resist the urge to increase watering immediately; instead, gradually adjust the watering frequency over time. As a terrestrial orchid, the Dossinia marmorata creeps along the ground, making it suitable for growth in a shallow, wide pot.

Known for its vigorous growth, this hybrid boasts intricate copper-to-gold veining, adding a touch of elegance to any collection. Expect a spectacular display in the summer when the Dossinia marmorata produces flower spikes that can reach up to an impressive 18 inches in height. For optimal results, cultivate this enchanting orchid in shade with warm temperatures.

Here are some key care tips:

  • Temperature: Intermediate-Warm
  • Light Level: Low-Medium
  • Bloom Season: Spring, Summer, Fall
  • Color(s): Brown, White
  • Fragrant: No

Don't miss the opportunity to own the 'Queen of Jewel Orchids' – the Dossinia marmorata. Elevate your orchid collection with this rare and breathtaking species, a true testament to the beauty found in the heart of Borneo's rainforests.
