    The shared image of the orchid is really nice. This orchid is really easy to grow. It has plain green leaves and lonely flowers, as it prefers the cool temperatures. The hardiest Paphiopedilum will be able to stand the near-freezing temperatures.

    maybe no freezing, but you are right, far below 10 °C.

    I can easily bloom this though it is supposed to be cool growing type but I cannot bloom my rothchildianum which is supposed to be intermediate to warm. I must reall give the rothchildianum a talking to.

    Beautiful, Mietek - I haven't seen a hirsutissimum that isn't a lot hairier than this one - I like yours better.
