Jewel Orchid

My Jewel Orchid (ludisia discolor) is sending out lots of blooms again this year, even though it is very overdue for repotting.

I bought it in Florida 15 years ago and am so pleased that it's still going strong. 

I had a report from a friend last week that a cutting I gave her from this plant a year or two ago is producing its first buds.

Each of the "petals" of the bloom produces individual orchid-shaped flowers.
