And if you overwater it, it will die very easily (because it has so little root to begin with).
Not true and it depends on your conditions!
One of our local member had lots of plants in his greenhouse and they would have very little roots. Even some of our local members complained about it. So I decided to examine his watering practises. He use a sprayer to just enough water so there is barely any water dripping from the drainage holes. He does the same with fertilizer water as well. He has been doing that for years and has great looking Paphiopedilums! Growths are big and looks healthy but when you unpot it ..... only 2 to 3 roots. His greenhouse has high humidity and lots of air movement.
