   Lady Slippers Care

   Light

    Low light: like phalaenopsis and african violets, lady slippers are often ground dwelling and are in much
    more shade than other orchids.

   Temperature

    Because lady slippers are often in more shade they require cooler temperatures and will survive but not thrive
    in high temperatures

   Water and Fertilizer

    Watering and fertilizing is the same as phalaenopsis, adjust depending on the potting media.

   Potting

    Repot usually in 1" larger pots even if the leaves extend past the rim of the pot. It is the root system that needs
    to be accomodated. Some growers use soil like medias that consist of small bark chips, however sphagnum
    has been used with great success
