Found in nature from the high hills of northern India to the lowlands of the Philippines and New Guinea, there's something special about these plants! The cup-like lip called the pouch gives them the common name of lady slipper or slipper orchid. 

Light: She likes bright, indirect light. West or East-facing windows are usually best. 

Water: The easiest way is to soak her in a bowl of water once every week or two. Let her drain on the side for 10 mins or so before returning to her decorative pot. 

In A/W, reduce your watering as she'll be taking a little break.  

Food: She will enjoy this seaweed-based fertiliser once every 2 weeks during S/S. Add 6 drops to 150ml of water and spray around the stem. You can use this mix on other plants as well. 

PM tip: She enjoys high humidity, so get misting! Or alternatively use a shallow tray of pebbles filled with water to increase humidity around her.
