Ladyslippers

Our nursery grows two kinds of 'Ladyslipper' Orchids.  Paphiopedilums, origintating in Asia and Phragmipediums, hailing from South America. We grow both species and man-made crosses. 

The ladyslippers commonly found growing wild in the United State are called Cypripediums and are not ones we grow or sell. They are very rare, and must have special growing conditions very hard to duplicate in cultivation. If you seen them growing the woods or your backyard, we suggest enjoying them where they are since transplanting them successfully is nearly impossible. 

 

Please refer to individual items for time expected until first blooming. Many of our offerings are young plants that will need to be grown to flowering size.  Unless otherwise stated in the description, items listed are not sent in spike, bud or bloom.

    Paph. appletonianum *Species*

    SKU:PaphApple/40

    Paphiopedilum appletonianum

    ('Fox Valley' AM/AOS x self)

    This wonderful species is everything elegant and dainty in a ladyslipper.  Low growing, compact foliage is pale green and silver with darker flecks.  Tall stems hold pink and green blooms that seem to float in mid-air.  The awarded parent is a high-color form and we expect these to be the same.  As plants mature they will produce clumps of multiple growths that can easily be grown as specimens. (We do not recommend dividing plants unless you have experience doing so). 

    Growing Suggestions:   Easy to maintain and bring into the flower. These are great for most windowsill collections, alongside other Phalaenopsis and Ladyslippers. Moderate light and intermediate temperatures.  Like other ladyslippers, roots should not be allowed to dry out.  We encourage checking for water approximately twice per week.  Plants are well established and do not need repotting until at least next spring.

     We have plants well grown in 4" pots and large enough to bloom in season, late this coming winter.
