Orchid Ludisia discolor
What is the best way to treat this plant to help it flower again next season. It has such a gorgeous intricate tiny flower and really lovely foliage that I'd love to keep it growing. At the moment the one stem is lovely and thick and solid. I am not watering it since the flowers died back. But is there any particular care I should be giving it?

The jewel orchid Ludisia discolor is relatively undemanding. it should be kept in light shade, out of direct sunlight.
It should be watered year.round but allowed to slightly dry between waterings and it is best re-potted each year of two years after flowering.
