Goodyera schlechtendaliana is part of the Orchidaceae family and its native range of this species is Tibet to Japan and Sumatra. It is a rhizomatous geophyte (it has underground storage organs) or lithophyte (a plant that grows on bare rock or stone) and grows primarily in the subtropical biome. Leaves are oblong to lanceolate with cream venation, sometimes appearing slightly pink.
Genus name honours English botanist John Goodyer and the specific epithet honours Diederich Franz Leonhard von Schlechtendal, a German botanist.
Pot: ø 6cm.
Height: Approximately 7cm from base of pot.
Light: Indirect light or shade, between 250-400 foot-candles. It is important for the plant to see the sky in order to survive.
Goodyera schlechtendaliana prefer the moss to be kept moist - providing that the plant is receiving adequate light.
Potting medium: Sphagnum moss or a mix of coco chips, coco coir, pine bark, perlite and worm castings, you could also add a layer of sphagnum moss to the top to keep the temperature up and moisture in.
Fertilising: Feed your plant monthly during the growing season or when you observe active growth. You can dilute fertiliser to half the recommended amount but never add more.
Temperature: 16-28°C but the true species grow in areas that can have winter lows below -10˚C.
Humidity: Higher humidity is best (80%), these plants work well in a terrarium. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a watered pebble tray, under a cloche or using a humidifier.
Unable to find concrete information about whether or not this plant is toxic, other Jewel Orchids are non-toxic but use your own judgement regarding placement.
