Dossinia Marmorata is one of the biggest and most stunningly veined jewel orchids out there, which is why it is sometimes called the ‘Queen of Jewel Orchids’.
Pot size: 6 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 8 cm (without the pot)
Dossinia Marmoratais one of the more humidity-loving jewel orchid and requires 60%+ to thrive. When this condition is met, it is quite an easy and rewarding plant to care for. Make sure to use a slightly moisture-retentive, but well draining potting mix such as the one suggested below.
If your Jewel Orchid starts dropping leaves, it means you have been under-watering it. Don’t start watering it more right away! Instead slowly increase watering over time. This plant is a terrestrial orchid, meaning it creeps on land, therefore it can grow in a shallow wide pot.
Medium light, part shade
