This one is rare? It's the only cyprepedium I like!! How do you grow it?
Yes, it is quiet rare.I grow all my cyps in inorganic mix, in shade, they get sun only in early morning and late afternoon, I water them every second day, if weather is hot, every day, I leave 0,5-1 cm water under the pot, fertilizing every time with 100 ppm NPK 2/1/1. I water them with flush-water avoiding salt accumulation. I rest them in plastic bag in fridge, between 0-+5 C.

Stunning! How large are the flowers on that one, and wherever did you find it?

Many thanks for comments.
I told I rest them in fridge, I mean in winter. They no need light in winter.
I got it from Schreineirs' Nursery, Germany.
Flower is about 3,5 cm "big".
