Goodyera Oblongifolia

Goodyera oblongifolia is a species of orchid known by the common names Western Rattlesnake Plantain and Giant Rattlesnake Plantain. It is native to North America; particularly the western side of the continent from Alaska to Mexico and to eastern Canada. It is most commonly found in mountain forests in the understory of conifers. This orchid forms a patch of broad lance-shaped to oval-shaped leaves at the ground. The leaf is dark green and in this species the midrib is streaked with white. The netlike veining on the leaf is also white but not as thick as the midrib stripes. The plant produces a tall spike up to 10 inches tall. The top of the spike has many white orchid flowers, which either may all face the same direction on the stalk or be spirally arranged around it.

Origin: Western North America.

Mature size: Tall - can grow up to 12 inches tall with 6 to 10 inch tall flower spikes.

Light: Shade to Partial shade.

Planting: Jewel Orchids should be watered regularly as they don’t like to be dry. An important thing to remember is that they don’t like standing water either so it is best to 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 and always keep the soil slightly moist but never soggy. They do well in terrariums.

Temperature: They need high humidity and warm temperatures around 70 to 80F: 20 to 28C

Propagation: Remove rhizome from mother plant and replant into moist soil. You will be able to get it to root by placing it in water. Plant will establish and grow roots in a short time.
