PLANT CARE ( Macodes Petola | Jewel Orchid )
|65ºF (18ºC) to 85ºF (29ºC), although it does best in the upper half of this temperature range. 60ºF (16ºC) is a safe minimum.
|Bright, indirect light is essential for good Macodes Petola care. Leaves will fade and scorch in direct sunlight.
|High humidity is preferable, but not essential. The humidity of 50-70% is excellent.
|Essential to keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy. Try not to get the foliage wet when watering.
As per the recommendations noted above, I have found that Macodes Petola | Jewel Orchid grows well as a houseplant provided they are given moderate light, mild temperatures, and the roots are kept continuously moist. Moist doesn’t mean wet and you also want to avoid bone drying the sweet spot in between that ensures air can flow through the potting mix but keep the roots hydrated. Besides helping to provide consistently damp soil, terrarium living is well-suited to the plant’s need for high humidity and temperature. Its small stature and low light requirements are other reasons the Macodes petola does well in terrariums. A potted plant won’t creep into other plantings, either. It is easier to groom and fertilize a houseplant, and there’s always space to propagate. Your Macodes petola‘s soil should retain moisture while preserving oxygen for the roots. The pH should be neutral or slightly acidic.

Eventually, the delivered plant may differ in for example size, the number of flowers & branches, The Plant Will be in a Plastic Pot Not The One Shown In The Picture.
