Haptodysphoria. (Noun)

An unpleasant sensation caused by touching certain materials like velvet, peaches, or velour.This plant has grade A, smoooooooooth, velvety leaves. If you identify with the above condition – we don’t recommend this plant.

Ludisia Disolor- commonly known as Jewel Orchid- is grown for its interesting, very dark velvety leaves with pinstripe markings. In certain light the maroon colour underneath the leaves can shine through and turn the white lines a hue of red. It flowers from September to March, however the flowers aren’t show stoppers. 

Growing tips:

If you are passionate about the foliage of Ludisia discolor and don’t care about the flowers, pinch out the flowering spikes when they start to form. This encourages the plant to remain compact and bushy, producing more leaves whereas allowing the flowering to take place can encourage the plant to become leggy.

Upon purchase, you will receive the plant in a plastic nursery pot size 9cm if you choose small or 12 if you choose large plant. Small plant has one stalk while large minimum 4 in one pot.

LIGHT  Ludisia is found growing down low, often in pretty shady places. For the best results try to replicate this in your home or office by avoiding placing it in direct sunlight. North facing rooms are perfect, but any other facing aspect is fine providing you can shield the leaves from any harsh sunlight that filters through during the day. Do not mistake this as a plant which likes darkness though, gloom needs to be avoided as much as direct sunlight. WATERING Slightly damp conditions are what the Jewel Orchid wants for the majority of the time. It does not like to have bone dry or soaking wet soil, leave its roots sitting in water and it will rapidly die. If you are using a more porous potting mix you will need to water more often than if using standard potting soil. HUMIDITY If you get the watering requirements (above) perfect, humidity is of only minor importance. If you know you are quite bad when it comes to watering though, give your Jewel Orchid a helping hand by increasing the surrounding humidity. This will give your plant a small buffer to compensate for the care you provide. FEEDING Jewel Orchids are small feeders, so in reality you will be totally fine if you only fed your plant a few times a year. You can use a special orchid feed or something more generic, it's not overly fussy. REPOTTING Repot when the pot is overcrowded or if it starts to become wobbly and top heavy. These orchids tend to spread out rather than grow tall, so their roots do not need a deep pot, a shallow wide pot should be your first choice. TEMPERATURE If you are too cold or too hot then your Jewel Orchid is probably feeling the same. The lowest temperature that we'd risk is 10°C / 50°F.
