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.

Phragmipedium from in seepage areas and require more moisture throughout the year than Paphiopedilums They will grow in intermediate conditions with light to moderate shade in a free-draining compost based on bark, spaghnum moss, rocks, perlite, charcoal, or combinations of any of those.
