New edition to my “plant family”! hehe.


This is a Paphiopedilum, aka Lady's Slipper Orchid. Isn't it pretty?! This is my personal favorite. =) The first orchid I got was a Lady's Slipper, but it died from root rot because I was still learning how to take care of them. This orchid's roots don't look so hot either, but I transplanted it into a good medium with fir bark, hard wood coal, and course perlite. I also fed with orchid food it after transplanting it. The store had it in tighly packed long fiber sphagnum. Grrrr.....

Sad huh? Do you think I can revive it? =(




I thought it leaves were really pretty. I hadn't seen them like that before
