FAQ

Watering frequency depends on various factors such as temperature, humidity, potting mix, and the size of the plant. As a general guideline, allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as jewel orchids are susceptible to root rot. It's better to underwater slightly than to overwater.

Jewel orchids, including Ludisia discolor, can tolerate lower light conditions compared to some other orchid species. They prefer bright, indirect light, but direct sunlight can scorch their leaves. Placing them near a north or east-facing window or providing them with filtered light is often suitable.

Jewel orchids thrive in humid environments. To increase humidity levels around the plant, you can place a tray filled with water and pebbles near the plant. Make sure the water level does not touch the bottom of the pot. Alternatively, you can use a humidifier or mist the plant regularly.

Yes, you can fertilize your jewel orchid during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble orchid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Apply the fertilizer every two to four weeks. Reduce or stop fertilization during the plant's dormant period in fall and winter.

Jewel orchids can be propagated through division or stem cuttings. Division involves carefully separating the plant into multiple sections, ensuring each section has roots attached. Stem cuttings can be taken from healthy stems with at least two nodes and placed in a suitable potting mix. Keep the cuttings warm and humid until they root.

If the leaves of your jewel orchid are losing their color and becoming dull or pale, it may indicate insufficient light. Jewel orchids require adequate light to maintain their vibrant foliage. Consider moving the plant to a brighter location with indirect light to restore its color.

Jewel orchids can be susceptible to common orchid pests such as aphids, mealybugs, scale insects, and spider mites. Regularly inspect your plants and take appropriate measures, such as using insecticidal soap or neem oil, to control pests. Overwatering can lead to root rot or fungal diseases, so it's important to avoid excessive moisture.

Great plants and great customer serviceI am very pleased with the customer service provided. My plants got delivered to a wrong address (by my mistake) and I wasn't able to get them back. I was sure that I lost my $200 worth of plants, but Gretchen from customer service was absolutely amazing and replaced my order. I was very impressed as I did not expect this to happen at all.
Thank you very much! I will order again!
