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. This form is characterised by the dark green black leaf with the silver veins instead of the copper red colour veins of var Dawsoniana.
Haemaria, also known as the genus Ludisea, is a single species group, with a variety of leaf forms.
