Paphiopedilum orchids, also known as lady slipper orchids, are popular houseplants due to their stunning flowers and ease of care. Here are some tips on caring for your Paphiopedilum orchid:

  1. Light: Paphiopedilum orchids prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as it can burn the leaves.

  2. Watering: Water your orchid once a week, or when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. It is important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Allow excess water to drain out of the pot and do not let the plant sit in standing water.

  3. Humidity: Paphiopedilum orchids prefer high humidity levels, around 50-70%. You can increase humidity by placing a tray of water near the plant, misting the leaves, or using a humidifier.

  4. Temperature: Paphiopedilum orchids prefer temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid exposing them to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or above 90°F (32°C).

  5. Soil: Paphiopedilum orchids prefer well-draining soil that is specifically formulated for orchids. You can also use a mix of bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).

  7. Repotting: Repot your orchid every 2-3 years or when it outgrows its current pot. Use fresh orchid mix and be careful not to damage the delicate roots.

  8. Pruning: Remove dead or yellowing leaves and flowers as they appear.

By following these care tips, your Paphiopedilum orchid should thrive and produce beautiful flowers for years to come.
