Jewel Orchids are so named because of the stunning patterns and coloration of their dramatic foliage. Truly miniature in size, they are ideal candidates for even the smallest terrariums. Although they can be difficult to grow in exposed conditions, their culture is greatly simplified when enclosed in glass.
They enjoy warm temperatures and a humid atmosphere without frequent misting. They like consistent moisture but do want good drainage and aeration around the roots.
Size: The jewel orchids we offer here are single growth, young and small, potted in a 2" pot and have been hardened off after being propagated through tissue culture. Please do not expect to receive show quality plants. Growing them out to maturity is up to you and may prove to be challenging for many growers. We only offer these as rare or very uncommonly available which is indicative of their price and value. Remember, most of these jewels require the added humidity of a terrarium environment to thrive and may not acclimate to conditions outside of a terrarium without time and tender loving care.
