Introducing Ludisia discolor, the Jewel Orchid, a captivating botanical marvel that graces your indoor spaces with its lush, velvety leaves. Hailing from the enchanting landscapes of Southeast Asia, this herbaceous beauty is celebrated for its unique brownish to olive green foliage, adorned with striking white to pink veins and mesmerizing reddish undersides.

Cultivating Ludisia discolor is a delightful experience, making it an ideal choice for both novice and seasoned plant enthusiasts. With an easy-going nature, this terrestrial orchid thrives in partial light, making it a perfect addition to your indoor garden. Plant it in well-drained, moist soil, and watch it flourish in conditions that mimic its native habitat.

The allure of Ludisia discolor lies in its dark green, almost black leaves adorned with bright salmon-colored veins, creating a visually stunning contrast. Standing at a modest height of 3-6 inches, these jewels are established in 2-inch pots, making them versatile additions to various settings.

This Jewel Orchid is known for its rapid growth, quickly becoming a focal point in any space. Whether placed in a pot on a shelf or showcased in a terrarium, Ludisia discolor thrives in shady conditions and revels in high humidity. Keep the roots consistently moist for optimal growth and health.

While Ludisia discolor is recognized for its foliage, it surprises with delicate spikes of white flowers that emerge in the winter, adding an extra layer of charm to its already impressive profile. Unlike traditional orchids, the Jewel Orchid shines as a houseplant prized for its leaves rather than its blooms.

For optimal care, maintain an intermediate to warm temperature range and provide low light levels, mimicking the dappled sunlight of its natural habitat. The bloom season unfolds in the fall, treating you to a display of elegant white flowers. Although not fragrant, the sheer beauty of Ludisia discolor makes it a must-have for any indoor plant collection.

This jewel plant is a single growth, young plant potted in a 2" pot. These plants are young seedlings, propagated through tissue culture, these plants have been hardened off to ensure their resilience. Given the rarity and uncommon availability of this species, the price reflects its unique value, making it a prized addition to any orchid collection.

Elevate your indoor gardening experience with Ludisia discolor, the fastest growing jewel among orchids. Discover the joy of cultivating this exceptional species, where every leaf is a masterpiece, and every growth is a testament to nature's beauty.
