Paphiopedilum culture differences

Paph Alliance

by Judith Pariseau

Hi, I'm a new member and have been growing orchids for 2 years. I have acquired several paphs of both the strap leaf and mottled leaf varieties. I am a little confused about the different culture they each require, mostly the optimum temperatures and light each type is happiest with. I'll appreciate any help. Thanks, Judith

    Hello Judith. Check out an excellent article by Sue Bottoms of the St. Augustine Orchid Society. The link is: https://staugorchidsociety.org/PDF/PaphiopedilumVarietiesbySueBottom.pdf Do you grow your paphs inside or outside?
