GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The Lady Slipper orchids are all members of the orchid subfamily Cypripedioideae.
  • If you hear someone talk about a "Lady Slipper," it is most likely that they are talking about a plant from the genus Cypripedium.
  • They might also be talking about a Paphiopedilum, a Phragmipedium, or (less likely) Mexipedium or Selenipedium.
  • Each genus within the subfamily is distantly related to the others; all are classified in their own tribes, except Paphiopedilum and Cypripedium, which are slightly less distant relatives and constitute the subtribe Cypripedieae.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • They grow well in garden soils, providing they're well-aerated and well-drained.
  • Use regular media suitable for growing Orchids.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize with a quarter-strength balanced orchid fertilizer (20-20-20) once a week after watering.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Dappled Sun/Part Shade.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • They require a regular and constant supply, keeping it out of the crown as this will cause the plant to rot.
  • The growing medium needs to be kept just damp not wet, so watering every 7 – 10 days should suffice.
  • Water early in the day so any moisture on the foliage has time to dry out before night.
