An absolute classic among the Paphiopedilum species, very easy to cultivate outdoors in summer, vigorous and willing to flower!
Windowsill partially shaded in summer. Only in winter with full light. Green-leaved varieties can grow outdoors in a shady spot, where they are also exposed to rain and dew, from early June to September. Then they bloom better.
Normal room temperature. Dropping to around 15°C at night.
Always keep the planting material moist in summer. Water more carefully in winter, but never let it dry out completely. Do not use water that is too hard.
During the growth phase from March to October every 14 days with orchid fertilizer
Do not fertilize in the dark period (November - February).
