GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Ludisia is a genus of orchids that contains just one species, Ludisia discolor, commonly referred to as jewel orchid.
  • They are native to Southern China, Northeast India, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Burma, and often cultivated.
  • They are terrestrial orchids that in their natural setting would be found growing on the forest floor.
  • They are known for their foliage, which is often velvety deep maroon with red veins that run parallel to the center of the leaf.
  • Flowers are white with twisting yellow columns.
  • Individual flowers are small but grow in clusters on upright stalks.
  • Flowers in cultivation last a month or more.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A good orchid potting mix should be fine, ideally one that contains some organic material.
  • Make sure the drainage is good to avoid rotting their roots.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER

  • These plants should regularly be fed with a balanced, diluted fertilizer like a 20-20-20.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Medium Light Levels.
  • Not overly fussy, but you need to avoid bright direct sunlight and dark low light gloom.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Moderate watering.
  • Water well and then don't water again until the top of the potting mix has dried out.
  • Much less water needed in winter.
  • Temperature warm rooms are needed as they don't like the cold.
