Ludisia Discolor var Nigrescens is the “black” variety of the popular Southeast Asian species. The leaves are velvety dark green with a single silver vein up the center. It blooms in spring with spikes of small whtish flowers, but you grow them more for the beautiful foliage than the flowers. They like it warm and humid with medium to low light, but should not be overwatered. Nice windowsill or terrarium plants.
