Paphiopedilum gratrixianum are also known as Venus Slipper Orchids and they belong to the Orchidacea family. It is a real eye-catcher with its large white spotted cap and striking purple markings on the underside of the leaves toward the base. The green foliage is firm with a waxy feel and fan out from the middle of each growth. It blooms in winter to spring.

Plant care

Pot size: 9cm - Height (including pot) 25cm approx.

Bright and indirect sunlight.

Water with tepid water and allow the water to flow out through the drainage holes to flush the soil. Best to water this plant in the morning as this will allow the water to evaporate throughout the day which will help prevent root rot. Do not allow the soil to dry out but make sure no water is left at the bottom. You will want to water more frequently during the warmer months and less frequently in the cooler months.

Normal UK room temperatures between 12°C - 25°C is fine for this plant.

The humidity level of 50-70% will be enough for normal growth. Good air flow is recommended for this plant. Stand pot in a tray of damp pebbles to raise humidity levels.

Non-toxic to cats and dogs. Feed once a month. Once all the flowers have fallen off, we advise to cut the plant to 10-12cm above the pot and with a bit of patience the plant will come back again.
