Hello everyone, I'm new in the forum. I would like to share some of my jewel orchids collection, that I collected recently.

Hope to learn more about them, anyone kept them for a long time and care to share their experiences in taking care of them?
I'm currently keeping them indoors and using artificial light.
But I notice my discolor 'super veination' leaves are quite folded after awhile. Anyone care to share what's wrong with them?

I'm still collecting more species as I really love the beautiful leaves of the plant.
If anyone here is selling or don't mind giving a stalk of any other species that I don't have can please share with me?

Think you probably swapped the Goodyera Hispida with L.D alba tags.
In general, these orchids always end in tears for me. Only Ludisia is easy -Dossinia and Macodes petola I have limited success but the others will probably shrink with time especially the cool growing Anoetochilus.

Thanks
