Jewel Orchid

Ludisia discolor

Grow this stunning orchid for its beautiful foliage, not its flowers. Each leaf is deep maroon-black and bears contrasting red or white stripes. In winter or early spring, it also shows off spikes of small white flowers. It's one of the easier orchids you can grow in your home.

Jewel orchid prefers a spot where it gets medium to bright light and medium to high humidity. Keep its potting mix evenly moist. Jewel orchid doesn't like to dry out, which makes it a good choice for growing in large terrariums. You can also try it as a summer annual outdoors in a warm, shady spot with moist, well-drained soil.
