Ludisia discolour, also known as a Black jewel orchid is unlike any typical orchid you might know, as she is appreciated for her foliage rather than her flowers! The almost-black, velvety leaves have delicate stiped veining which has caught the eye of plant collectors over recent times. She's easy care too!

Your Ludisia will be happy in medium light levels.
Add water when the top layer of soil has dried out, ensuring good drainage.
Regular humidity levels are OK!
During warmer months, houseplants are actively growing and will appreciate regular plant food. During colder months, a plants growth rate slows down and so they often need less water.
Flowers can be removed without harming the plant.
