It's valued for its exquisite foliage rather than its flowers. The leaves are velvety and often feature intricate patterns resembling jewels or veins, hence its name. This orchid thrives in humid environments with low to moderate light. While its flowers are small and delicate, it's the ornamental foliage that steals the show, making it a sought-after choice among orchid enthusiasts and collectors.
