    I've never grown them either. Which ones do you have, Ludisia discolor? You might have an easier time finding info if you have a specific name. But I think they like similar conditions.

    prolly "rattlesnake plantain" which would be the genus Goodyera if its like the other jewel orchids put them in potting soil and treat them as a house plant.....bout as simple as growing orchids gets....

    Those do look like Goodyera and might be Goodyera pubescens - http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/...dyerapube.html. Those are native across a lot of the eastern US, maybe even into KS.
