With its dark green leaves and white flowers, the Ludisia discolor var. nigricans is a feast for the eyes. Also known as Black Jewel Orchid, this easy-to-grow orchid from South Asia is known for its attractive foliage. Leaves are deep green to black with a thin copper stripe down the middle and dark undersides.
Small white flowers with yellow throats are produced on a spike. For best results, provide indirect light to low light and plant in an orchid-specific soil mixture. Water whenever the soil appears dry. Young plants can be pruned to encourage branching.
Note: This plant loves the humidity of a terrarium environment.
