Jewel Orchid

The Flower buds on the Jewel Orchid stem, like a sheaf of wheat.
Its scientific name is Ludisia Discolour.

The Velvety leaves do their best to avoid being photographed.This one is with the flash on, in the front room, about eight foot from a windowsill.It is sat on a pebble tray with water in it, to mimic a humidified atmosphere.
