The Jewel Orchid aka Macodes Petola is a stunning houseplant which features velvety dark green leaves adorned with fluorescent neon lightning veins. Like its Orchid cousins, if given the right care the Macodes Petola will typically blossom white flowers in the winter months, which in this species have a chocolate or pale-green centre that grow from a "spiked" stem. However, the flowers do not take centre-stage in this luminous plant and are over-shadowed by its vibrant electric green leaves which sparkle in sunlight.
