Goodyera Pubescens

Goodyera pubescens, known as the Rattlesnake Plantain, is one of the most common orchids native to eastern North America. It is an evergreen terrestrial species with beautiful variegated leaves. They bear great resemblance to the South Asian species and are just as easy to keep. The variegation is in the form of a densely-reticulated network of veins that are a much lighter green than the rest of the leaf tissue. It is a creeping plant that divides on the ground surface. Small white flowers are born on single, slender stem that is about 6 to 10 inches tall in late summer.

Origin: Eastern North America.

Mature size: Tall - can grow up to 12 inches tall with 6 to 10 inches 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 protected than those damaged by damp conditions.

Water: Keep soil well drained. Always keep the soil slightly moist but never soggy. They do extremely well in terrariums.

Temperature: They do well in the terrarium at 70 to 80F: 20 to28C with high humidity.

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.
