Care Guide


This Jewel Orchid prefers filtered and indirect light. Placing it by a north facing window is ideal as too much direct sunlight will burn the leaves. It can also grow in partial shade.


Keep the soil moist but don’t let it sit in water. Don’t let this plant completely dry as it does not enjoy it.


This plant doesn’t like cold rooms. Keep it warm, between 18-26 degrees. It also needs a moist environment with above average humidity, imitating its natural tropical climate. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water.
