Paphiopedilums are divided into two teams, the beautiful and cozy-developing, mottled-leaved kind, along with the cool-expanding, eco-friendly leaved kind. The rose is wax-like with a prominent pouch and dorsal sepal. Commonly called the Lady Slipper Orchid.

Plant growth conditions

It is Intermediate developing orchids. They might require a minimum night time temperature of 55°F to 60°F. Time temps should range between 70°F to 80°F. Humidity should be modest, 40Per40Per cent to 50Per cent is enough. Avoid the primary sun, other than in the early morning or late mid-day. Paphs are deficient light plants and flowers and need to increase inside a well-shaded atmosphere.

Focus on a damp media, not washing, and do not allow the garden soil blend to dry up entirely between waterings. Tend not to mist.

Plant reproduction
