Macodes petola (Lightning Jewel Orchid)


The Macodes petola is an unforgettable jewel orchid with amazing leaves that seem to literally light up a collection.  Bright or moderate, indirect light and warm temperatures of 65-85ºF (18-29ºC) year-round are essential to providing good Macodes petola care. The soil should be loose and well-aerated with good water retention; it should never become overly dry or soggy. Fertilize lightly on a regular basis and provide moderate to high humidity.
