Dossinochilus Dreamcatcher - Jewel Orchid

SKU: dssdrm/jwlorc/1
  • Great for terrariums and vivariums, jewel orchids love low light, warm temperatures, even moisture, and bi-weekly doses of 1/4-strength orchid fertilizer. Avoid getting the leaves wet, or they may spot. If the veining on the leaves starts to get indistinct, or the leaves start to lighten or take on an orange tinge, they are in too much light.

    Jewel orchids are mostly terrestrial in nature, rambling through the layer of duff on the forest floor in tropical forests. Though they grow on the ground, the duff layer--or O-horizon--where there roots and stems reside is light, airy, and made up of decaying plant matter, a very different medium than normal potting soil.

    Be sure to give them adequate drainage, and as they grow larger repot them into shallow containers. Jewel orchids tend to creep around in their pots and they root fairly shallowly. Here at Artifact Gardens we grow our jewel orchids in a 60/40 peat-perlite mix, but many people use New Zealand sphagnum moss and other media with success. The main take-home on media is that jewel orchids enjoy a moisture-retentive, airy medium, and don't like wet feet.
