Ludisia

.
Or also called Haemeria discolor. A small ground-orchid from Asia. This little plant grows very well in places with shadow and it easy to propagate. The Ludisia is available from September to March with dark red velvet like leaves. Each plant will produce one bud in the centre, which will be fully grown in around 6 weeks, after which small buds open into little white flowers. The flowers will last for about 10 weeks after which the bud has to be cut out for it to flower again next year..
