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