    Thumbs up

    Here is some culture help for Paph orchids.

    Humidity should be around 40-70 % and temperature between 70 - 80 degrees during the day and 55-65 degrees at night. This slipper orchid and others like it should be watered generously and kept damp: lacking pseudobulbs, the plants use their roots for water and nutrient storage, therefore the roots should never be allowed to completely dry out. It appears to be potted in a good bark mix, so just make sure to not over or under water it. It will appreciate light levels around 1200 foot candles (bright, filtered light) No direct sunlight.

    cheers,
    BD
