ludisia discolor var alba

Discolor Var. Alba

This is an orchid species native to Malaysia, Indonesia and Burma. It is a terrestrial orchid, which means it grows in soil and soil-like medium on the ground. In their natural environment, these orchids can be found growing on the forest floor. Their velvety, green leaves with white veins that run parallel to the center is something they are known for. The backsides of the leaves and stems are green. A 6”-10” long flower spike holds as many as 25 white blossoms decorated with yellow throats. They may have a slight fragrance. Grow in medium to low 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: Malaysia, Indonesia and Burma

Mature size: Tall - can grow up to 14 inches (24 inches with flower spike)

Light: Full sun to Partial shade.

Planting: Jewel Orchids should be watered regularly as they don’t like to be dry. An important thing to remember is they 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 protected 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

Propagation: Remove new plant 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.
