The Jewel Orchid or Ludisia discolor is unlike all other Orchids we grow in our homes because, as a houseplant, the Jewel Orchid is prized for its foliage rather than its flowers.  Featured photo is what plant will look like when in bloom.  

This is an easy indoor plant to care for. A mature Jewel Orchid that is several years old and has received good care will eventually produce multiple growths and spread out. When it's time for the plant to flower, the growths will each produce a flowering spike that grows upwards quickly. Once ready the flower buds will open and show off many little white flowers which certainly create a lasting impression. Keep the plant away from any harsh sunlight that filters through during the day. Comes in a 4” nursery pot. It can handle low light. Water the plant well and then wait until it's drying out before watering again.

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
  • Valentina Terracotta Pot 6" - a beautiful molded terracotta pot that is porous and fire glazed to allow plant roots to breathe; color works well with any decor and will develop a beautiful patina color over time. Includes matching dish underneath to catch water drainage and protect surfaces.
