Sarcolexia 'Sea Foam'

-(Sarcoglottis sceptrodes x Pelexia laxa) Jewel Orchid

This is a medium sized orchid with vibrant green foliage. Showing a strong resemblance to the parent plant Sarcoglottis sceptrodes, all but the center of each leaf is washed with silvery white coloration. This is one of the few Jewel orchids we strongly recommend exclusively for display inside terrariums and vivariums. This variety thrives in higher humidity and lower light than other Jewels. While this is not considered a miniature variety, it is relatively slow growing and easy to maintain a desirable size with regular grooming.

Sarcolexia 'Sea Foam' is particularly stunning when placed close to water features and tends to handle the extra moisture better than other varieties of Jewels. We do not recommend it be placed in soggy soil or standing water.
