Ludisia discolor variegata is probably the easiest jewel orchid to grow. Originating from mainly Southeast Asia, this orchid has deep red or green leaves with beautiful orangey or white veining that glistens. It blooms freely in our climate, producing tiny white flowers that are relatively long-lasting.
Jewel orchid is a common name used to refer to a number of orchids that are cultivated primarily for their foliage instead of their flowers. These are namely orchids in the genus Ludisia, Goodyera, Anoectochilus, Dossinia and Macodes. It is worth pointing out that they are all classified under the Goodyerinae subtribe and have varying distribution. Jewel orchids are typically known for their striking veining that is usually glittery.
