Description  more details

Paphiopedilum (abbreviated Paph.) lowii is native to Sumatra, the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Java and the Celebes Islands. The album form is the rarest form of Paph. lowii. This population is a selfing of the extraordinary awarded clone 'Albino Beauty' (with green and white flowers and unusually shaped large petals), which has a Certificate of Horticultural Merit (CHM) from the American Orchid Society (AOS). This clone is stocky, compact, and half the size compared to the standard variety. This is an easy to grow, spring to summer blooming, multi-floral slipper orchid species, with tall erect spikes with up to 5 flowers.

These plants are more compact and half the size in growth compared to the regular Paph. lowii. The album form prefers lower light than regular Paph. lowii; excellent companion to Phalaenopsis.

 These plants grow very well with Phalaenopsis as they require similar cultural requirements. Keep plants in moderate indirect light with humidity at 60 to 80% with intermediate to warm temperatures. Water as the potting mix approaches dryness. Excellent for growing on a windowsill or under lights. As with all Paphs, its roots are sensitive to salt buildup from excess fertilizer which causes leaf tips to turn brown. It is a good practice to flush the medium with water once a month and repot Paphs in fresh media every year. These top quality plants are highly desirable and very rewarding. Highly recommended for beginners and Paph collectors.
