Cypripedium hybrids are the result of crossing two wild or botanical species. Those orchids are generally distinguished by increased vigor (hybrid vigor).

What to do when I get my Cypripedium?

We advise to replant immediately our perennial orchid at receipt of order. This will prevent the rhizome from drying in the culture pot.

We remind you that the Cypripedium live naturally in cold or very cold areas and support when they are installed in the ground temperatures down to -30 ° C. In addition, they absolutely need winter cold to bloom the following spring. It is therefore not keep them inside a home during the winter. Install them in the garden in summer or autumn, to enjoy acclimatised plants in the spring.

The Cypripedium are generally present in undergrowth in environments which remain cool during the summer. We recommend installing them away from plain sunlight to avoid exposing them to high temperature during the hot hours. A little morning sun or late afternoon is sufficient.

The soil should be light and fresh (especially in summer). The use of mineral substrate (type thin lava) allows the substrate even stay moist during drought.

A single substrate can be achieved by mixing approximately 1/3 of lava rock or pumice, 1/3 ground for aquatic plants (usually containing some clay and sand) and 1/3 garden soil.
