Native to South East Asia, Macodes is known for the silver sparkle in its leaves. The velvety leaves have green base with prominent silvery veins netting the leaf surface. Lower side of the leaves is purplish in color. The golden sparkling veins have the ability to reflect the light and look stunning in bright light.
Macodes Petola is easy to grow given you provide it with even moisture all year round and right potting mix. 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
Keep evenly moist throughout the year
