heavy shade and lots of moisture seems to make them happy but I keep forgetting to make a label for them. It's right on the tip of my tongue but won't come out.

Ah, jewel orchid. See what happens when you get old? But you surely must have meant Ludisia discolor? Right?

Yes, of course. I have no idea how I managed to type "Indisia". As A friend of mine once said, "See what happens when you get old".
