I started my orchid hobby about 2yrs ago. I have always like the shape of slipper flower mainly because of the pouch. I then found out that they are hard to grow and can't be neglected. I bought a P. spicerianum about 6mos ago with flower on it. It has been a challenge for the to keep this one happy. I can grow Cattleya ok but not these slippers. I hope to improve my understanding of these plants and expand my collection. Thanks.
