Hey! I'm Ludisia discolor or commonly known as "Jewel Orchid", however unlike other orchids I'm primarily grown for my attractive foliage. I'm a really easy to care for plant, that tolerates low light levels. I originate from Malaysia, Indonesia and Burma. My foliage is a very dark green with white pinstripes, and maroon undersides.
I'm in a 12cm pot and I'm 25cm in height from the base of my pot.
I like average warmth and a shady spot.
Love humidity too so give my leaves a mist now and then thanks.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I hate a bright spot so a shady spot would do fine for me. Water me well keep the compost moist, but well drained. I love bathrooms and kitchens, for their humidity. Humidity can also be increased using pebble trays, or coupling (grouping many plants together).

I'm not known to be toxic.
