With most orchids, one thinks of special and beautiful flowers. But the jewel orchid is especially known precisely for the beautiful patterns and lovely sparkles on the leaves of the plant. Thus, this orchid is already beautiful to see without being in bloom.
The flowers of this orchid may be very small and less spectacular compared to other striking orchids, but they are very cute.
This compact miniature orchid is also very suitable for a terrarium.
This orchid is named in several Asian myths, with the pattern of its leaves and sparkles coming, for example, from a robe of a sad goddess running through the forest. In the process, she loses pieces of fabric from her beautiful dress, leaving behind special little orchids.
