    Default Anoectochilus chapaense a jewel orchid

    Forgot to take a picture of the foliage. Ah well, maybe later. The foliage is similar to Ludisia discolor being very dark, almost black and quite satiny. Instead of the reddish straight veins of Ludisia, however, the veins are orange and are more ... erratic? jagged? ... reminiscent of Macodes. The flowers are much more eye catching than Ludisia's, IMO.
