Introducing Anoectochilus sp. 'The Wizard of Oz' var. red – a stunning jewel orchid that captivates with its dark and velvety leaves adorned with striking red venation, creating an electrifying appearance reminiscent of the magical world of Oz. This warm-growing terrestrial species thrives on the forest floor, steep shaded hills, or cliffs, nestled among leaf litter.

Cultivating these enchanting orchids is a delightful experience, as they showcase some of the most captivating foliage in the jewel orchid family. To ensure optimal growth and flowering, we recommend potting them in New Zealand sphagnum moss, allowing the moss to approach dryness between watering sessions.

The white, frayed flowers emerge gracefully from the center of the rosette of leaves, resembling delicate asparagus spears. Over the course of a few months, these floral spikes elongate, revealing their flower buds, and bless your space with their blooms for a month or two. After flowering, a new growth will emerge at the base, and the faded flowered growth will gradually make way for the next cycle of beauty.

For successful cultivation, maintain an intermediate temperature and provide medium light levels. These jewel orchids thrive in low to medium light conditions, making them perfect for indoor settings. While they are not fragrant, their visual allure compensates for any lack of scent.

Consistency is key when it comes to watering these ornamental gems. Keep the soil consistently moist, and they will thrive with a touch of additional humidity. Opt for a well-draining, chunky potting mix to create an ideal environment for these captivating plants.

Allow your Anoectochilus sp. 'The Wizard of Oz' var. red to approach dryness between waterings and provide them with medium to bright indirect light.

This is a small 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.

With the right care, you'll be rewarded with an ongoing display of velvety, red-veined leaves and occasional bursts of delicate white flowers, transforming your space into a botanical wonderland. Elevate your indoor garden with the enchanting beauty of this unique jewel orchid.
