Ludisia discolor 'Black Velvet'
29th November 2009
A beautiful dark leaved form of the species (which unfortunately catches the dust rather obviously). Grows best on the windowsill, though I occasionally
give it a summer break in the greenhouse.

I keep trying to convince myself that I can successfully coax these warmth loving orchids through the winter
on a windowsil, and they survive but I can hardly claim that they are happy.
