Macodes petola 'Gold' - Jewel Orchid

Comprobando la disponibilidad local

Indirect light is key for these plants; they don't want to be in too bright/ direct light. As long as it's light enough to read a newspaper there, a dimmer position will be perfect.

Water when the top third of the soil has dried out; make sure excess water can drain freely from the pot!

Average humidity is fine; it can benefit from the introduction of a pebble tray but too much humidity can also be harmful for this orchid so take care that it also has some air circulation! 

A well-draining but moisture retentive mix is best for this plant. One with a little added coir and bark, or a mix suited for Alocasia, will be the perfect fit. 

Feed monthly in the dormancy period, and a little more frequently in spring and summer or whilst blooming. A houseplant feed will do, and will favour the leaves; if you want to encourage blooming, use a feed high in potassium, such as tomato feed.

Ideal temperature is 15-25°C; make sure it does not get colder than 12°C in winter.

This plant is non-toxic to humans and pets but can cause a bad reaction, particularly if lots is eaten, so it's advisable to keep out of reach if your pets are prone to a frequent nibble!
