Cystorchis Variegata 

Cystorchis Variegata is a beautiful jewel orchid that has burgundy colored leaves with ruffled edges. Cystorchis Variegata is a terrestrial orchid, meaning it grows in soil. In their natural environment, these orchids can be found growing on the forest floor. Grow in medium light. Plant in sphagnum moss or potting soil and keep the medium slightly moist. This plant will grow easily and strongly in your vivarium. 

Origin: Southeast Asia

Mature size: Small – grows 4 to 7 inches tall

Planting: Jewel Orchids should be watered regularly as they don’t like to be dry. An important thing to remember is that don’t like standing water either so wait until the soil begins to dry out before watering again. Don’t over-water your Jewel Orchids as dry Jewel Orchids are easier to protect than those damaged by damp conditions.

Water: Keep soil well drained. Always keep the soil slightly moist but never soggy. 

Temperature: They need high humidity and warm temperatures. They do well in a terrarium at 70 to 80F: 20 to 28C
