Macodes sanderiana is a gorgeous miniature jewel orchid with striking velvety leaves that look like they have been struck by lightning. Rather than getting too much bigger, they will clump and produce offsets to grow.
Current Pot Size: 50mm
Light: Low. Category x (please see our blog on plant light requirements)
Soil: These are grown in sphagnum moss but can be potted in a well draining orchid mix. (please see our blog on soil requirements)
Fertiliser: Follow the directions on your fertiliser of choice then dilute that by 10. Jewels orchids need only a weak fertiliser. Fortnightly or monthly during the growing season
Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry out between waterings.
Maintenance: Seperate pups that grow from the original rhizome to propagate.
