Jewel Orchid (Ludisia discolor) is unique among the orchids that are commonly grown as houseplants in that it is valued primarily for its striking foliage rather than its flowers. The leaves of the Jewel Orchid are typically dark green in color and have a metallic sheen that gives them a "jewel-like" appearance. They are often veined with red, pink, or white, making them an attractive and striking foliage plant.
While other orchids are grown for their showy blooms, the Jewel Orchid's small, inconspicuous flowers are typically white or pink in color and not as prominent, so the plant's leaves are the main attraction. They can be used to add a touch of color and texture to indoor gardens.

It is native to the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia and is relatively easy to grow as a houseplant, and prefers bright, indirect light and high humidity. It can be grown in a well-draining, moist soil and should be fertilized regularly during the growing season. It can also be propagated via the rhizomes.
