    Thank you all for nice comments.

    For those of you who know jewel orchids better than me, what's the difference between different kinds of jewel orchids? I think I know that the leaves from Crepidium, which are pic3 from Mulu (the second sets). What abput the green leaves with veins, Goodyera, Macodes?

    See my post in another message here about jewel orchids, to learn how they were growing, and the lessons I learned. ( basically , light so low, you wouldn't believe) then they grow like weeds.....
    They used to be grown in England exclusively for the foliage, and flower spikes pinched out . I like that.We don' need flowers on everything do we ? Not me, at any rate.

    Hi, there are 2 Crepidiums in there, I don't think they fall into "Jewel" orchids, do they?
