Jewel Orchids

Jewel Orchids are small, terrestrial orchids native to tropical and temperate regions worldwide. Jewel Orchids do bloom, but their flowers are generally pale colored and insignificant. What makes jewel orchids stand out (and gives them their name) are their foliage. Jewel Orchids are known for having amazingly colored and patterned leaves, oftentimes with a metallic sheen. These characteristics really make them stand out in a naturalistic vivarium. Jewel orchids generally prefer humid conditions, but do not tolerate standing water on their leaves.
