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.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

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".
