Ludochilus 'Sea Turtle' - Hybrid Jewel Orchid

$ 14.00

Ludochilus 'Sea Turtle' is one of the so-called "Jewel Orchids", terrestrial orchids grown primarily for their sparkling foliage, rather than flowers. This species is a hybrid between Ludisia discolor and Anoectochilus formosanus. The result is a stunning, deep purple-green foliage with pink venation in a pattern that looks not unlike the back of its namesake, the sea turtle.


 Light: Low to medium indirect light
• Water: Keep growing medium lightly moist at all times
• Considerations: Mist regularly to create a humid environment. Clip flower spikes after blooms fade


You'll get a healthy Ludochilus 'Sea Turtle' that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 2" nursery pot. Please note, these are exceedingly juvenile plants whose root systems are still in development. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

It arrived healthy and beautiful, and it has acclimated well to its new home. I’ve had it for about a month and it’s doing great! Mine is a slightly larger than the one in the photo, and it’s already starting to make a flower spike.

My sweet sea turtle arrived happy and perky thanks to the awesome Pistils team. I appreciate the loving and attentive care they provide to the plants and their new parents.
