Ludisia discolor - Jewel Orchid
Ludisia discolor is an easy to grow orchid with beautiful pink veined, nearly black leaves. Tall spikes hold lots of small white flowers.
Soil – Well drained, general purpose potting soil. No fancy “orchid mixes” necessary!
Light – Bright, indirect light. An east window is perfect. Avoid direct south or west sun. Grow lights work well, too.
Watering – Do not let dry out completely. Water well and then don't water again until the top of the potting mix has nearly dried out.
Temperature – Room temperature (between 60°F-80°F) works well.
Fertilizing – Half strength, monthly fertilizer during the spring and summer.
