  4. Hi Ed,

    The photos are actually jewel orchids. I should have included the names, my bad.
    The botanical name is Ludisia Discolor.
    The other one is called Goodyera Hispida also known as "The Shagy Goodyera".
    I actually have the Anoectochillus Albo Lineatus and it looks almost the same but the leaves are much more rounder. I've attached the photo of the Anoectochillus as a comparison.

    You can find all the infomation about all these orchids and all the rest of the orchids here.

    Cheers,
