I have the alba (several...), probably a few to spare, or Oak Hill sells them. It is quite beautiful. I think Gideon's is what we would call over here 'Ludisia discolor v. nigrescens'. Or similar to it. That is harder to find (and why I don't have it).

As rob said it is Ludisia discolor var. nigricans...and it is the only type I have unfortunately...they are full up in our area as it is the only one I see for sale

Isn't that weird? I've seen the nigrescens variety offered in various places on the interweb, but never in person around here. I don't know if the variety we have has a name, but it is as common as Michigan dirt... Looks like this.

And just for giggles, another cool jewel orchid, Macodes petola

I thought the single-lined form of Ludisia discolor was 'var. odina'? Or is this another variety? There are MANY forms of this species, I have even seen one without veining...

Nice clump Gideon! =)
