The dotted lady's shoe!
Hardy outdoor orchid for your garden
Cypripedium reginae X flavum
These new hybrids are ideal for the orchid lover.
The soil should be enriched with humus. Winter protection is usually not necessary. In spring it should be shaded slightly to prevent premature budding.
Only in dry weather from budding until after the end of the flowering period.
Orchid fertilizer if the concentration does not exceed 0.5-1 ml/L. At high concentrations, the fine hair roots and, in some species, the mycorrhiza (soil fungi) are destroyed.
