Phragmipediums & Paphiopedilum Page (Phrags and Paphs)
Paphiopedilum, from Paphos, the birthplace of Aphrodite, and Greek pedilon, slipper. More than 70 species in tropical Asia. Grow usually as terrestrial, but sometimes epiphytic or lithophytic. Plants have no pseudobulbs. They are relatively easy to cultivate. As a general rule, species with mottled leaves, prefer higher temperatures and those with plain solid colored leaves. Plants need water throughout the year, but not allowed to remain wet for long periods of time. A free draining mix is recommended. We use bark, charcoal, perlite, sphagnum, and rocks in combination that holds moisture but does not remain wet for long periods. 'The Pouch Orchid'
