Macodes sanderiana is second only to petola esthetically, with beautiful velvety foliage and electric veining.
The leaves are mostly shades of deep green and red with hints of yellow coming from the center on young leaves. The spectacular metallic veining present on the foliage is typically white in the center, fading into tones of foil gold as it reaches the edges of the leaf.
A true Macodes sanderiana's foliage is framed with a thin white/cream line that appears to be rippling away from the epicotyl. This is a great starter plant for someone looking to enter the world of Jewel orchids as the care requirements are minimal.
While this is not considered a miniature variety, it is relatively slow growing making them ideal long-term occupants in terrariums & vivarium’s. As they mature they form beautiful, glittering, full clusters of foliage.
Favored by both hobbyists and professional growers, this is hands down one of our favorite jewels.
