Haemaria discolor (or Ludisia discolor ) is a semi terrestrial or lithophyte species of the shady forest. The plnats should be grown in a well drained media that will stay damp but not wet. In winter, the plants can be deciduous and should be dried out, with just sufficiebt water to stop them shrivelling.
On appearance of new growth, a repot into fresh media is beneficial. A shallow tray will allow the rhizome to spread out. Haemaria discolor var Dawsoniana is identical to the type , but the foliage is veined and reticulated copper red.
Haemaria, also known as the genus Ludisea, is a single species group, with a variety of leaf forms.
