THE MAGICAL WORLD OF JEWEL ORCHIDS

Jewel orchids are a collective term used for terrestrial orchids that tend to grow on the forest floor throughout the tropics and neo tropics at various levels of elevation, depending on the species. They are generally known and kept for their gloriously unusual and sparkly leaves. 

 In a home environment, they do need higher levels of humidity, so tend to stay compact and do well in open or closed terrariums.
