 Ludisia discolor, Haemaria discolor, Anoectochilus dawsonianus, Myoda rufescens
Family: Orchidaceae
Jeweled Ludisia, Jewel Orchid, Goodyera
Origin: India, Indonesia, South East Asia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeEpiphyteModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFragrant

This beautiful plant is called "jewel orchid" because of the dark green leaves crisscrossed with red lateral lines, that makes them quite appealing even when not in bloom. This species is a terrestrial or lithophytic plant occurring in evergreen, lowland forests in shady, humid habitats with rocky substrates along streams and rivers without pseudo-bulbs, the fleshy red stems twisted, erect or pendulous are 8 to 10" long and have stalked elliptic-lanceolate 2 to 3" leaves and a terminal cylindrical fairly dense 4 to 12" long inflorescence that has small asymmetrical, fragrant flowers that last 2 to 3 weeks. They can be potted with 1/2 potting soil and 1/2 tree bark, given deep shade and humid well watered conditions year round. If the leaves lose the dark green and a lot of pale red is visible they are getting too much light.

I have two Ludisia plants in fairly small pots which appear to be root bound. They are beautiful and extremely healthy but I am wondering whether I can or should repot into larger pots. I know this should not be done with other orchids but would appreciate your advice about these.
