Ludochilus Sea Turtle is a hybrid that displays a stunning, deep purple-green foliage with pink venation in a pattern that looks not unlike the back of its namesake, the sea turtle. This is a cross of (Lus. discolor var. nigrescens x Anct. formosanus). Great terrarium plant, they love the higher humidity!

The most common jewel orchids are Ludisia discolor, which comes in different cultivars – the standard is red-veined dawsoniana variety (aka ‘Red Velvet’), bright-green white-veins alba variety (aka ‘Green velvet’), dark-leaved with lesser veins and scented flowers ‘Nigrescens’ variety (aka ‘Black velvet’) and rather rare and seen by some as an intergeneric hybrid with Anoectochilus species ‘Thanlania’ with a complex pattern of more veins which are bright and showy.

The jewel orchids are single growth, young and SMALL, potted in 2″ pots. Growing them out to maturity is up to you and may prove to be challenging for many growers. Remember, most of the jewels require higher humidity (think terrarium environment) to thrive and may not acclimate to conditions outside of a terrarium without time and care.

All the photos are of the plants for sale. Although they do produce a flower, Jewel orchids are revered for their leaves and make a prefect plant lover gift!

    This young seedling Den arrived in 5 days, and was a little limp and dry. I soaked it for 15 minutes so hopefully it will perk up. I grow my seedlings under grow lights, so hopefully it will mature quickly and bloom! Thanks!

    Phenomenal seller!! While packing my order, he noticed mealies on this plant and wrote me right away. Offered a refund of replacement, with many apologies. It was what I really wanted so I asked if he could just wait to ship until it was treated and he agreed. When I received my other plant I’d ordered, there was a bonus plant! Such a thoughtful gesture! This plant didn’t end up surviving, he did not have another one the same size and again offered me a refund, replacement, basically anything I wanted. I was really set on that one so he ended up finding two slightly younger plants that were smaller than the one I purchased that didn’t make it, and sent both of them to me! So I now have four plants for the price of two, and I’m just completely over the moon over it. Super healthy and I just can’t wait until they bloom!

    I am truly amazed at how healthy this plant is. I’m so used to seeing unhealthy or diseased orchids from nurseries and online sellers, it’s a pleasure to find a seller that actually takes pride in their work and products. Very impressed! It also came with a personalized care sheet, which was thoughtful, and that personalized approach goes a long way!

    Super fast shipping, love that recyclable material is used. Plant was nicely packed but a few leaves did break in transport (nothing too bad though, it will be fine). Plant was in great condition otherwise, I’m super happy with it!

    This beautiful and or so rare Hwra. Lava Burst Puanani orchid seedling, was shipped in perfect condition.. This beauty has a strong root system, beautiful strong leaves, really it’s flawless. It’s has to have a skilled person that knows how to take care of this type orchid and I’ll take it from here. Thanks to this shop DUTCHGUYORCHIDS, for having so many rare hard to find orchids in his shop. I will always come here first when I’m looking for the best of the best orchids. Thanks so much for getting my order safely and fast.
