Ludisia "Jade Velvet" (Ludisia discolor)

Mostly grown for the foliage (although I love the blooms personally), Ludisia are one of the easiest orchids to grow.

Yes, I love the velvety leaves on these. You say they are easy, and yet I managed to kill one!...I'm leaving it to the experts from now on!

I thought the same as Sticki. Such lovely leaves.

It would be hard to say that it is an Orchid from the leaves, although the flowers do give the game away.

Soooo, you're trying to tell us we should water from bottom. Oooops.

Every time Karen and Alex! That and cool draughts are the only two things that this dislikes.
