This delicate creamy orchid is relatively easy to grow. It needs a dormant period to flower, but once it does, it's a definite eye-catcher.
The Paphiopedilum orchid originated in Cambodia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and China, growing in evergreen forests and steep cliffs. Generally, the blooming season for Paphiopedilum orchids starts in autumn and goes through spring. The blooms are long-lasting and typically stay in bloom for about 6-8 weeks.
