    Slipper ID and help please

    Again, from your first photo, that is definitely a Phragmipedium. It is probably some besseae hybrid. One, due to the red color and two, due to the climbing nature of your plant. While phrags love to be continuously moist, I am afraid that mix will be too wet and promote root rot. as far as...

    Phrag Don Wimber

So, I treat it as such with; excision of the affected tissue and peroxide, bensole peroxide, fungicides or...
