Paphiopedilum (abbreviated Paph.) villosum can be found in northeast India in the state of Assam, southern China, and the Myanmar states of Kachin, Kayar, Shan and Upper Sagaing Region. It grows in cloud forests at altitudes of 3,600 feet to 6,900 feet in areas with abundant rainfall.


Grow this species in bright indirect light, under intermediate to warm temperatures in high humidity and good air circulation. Paph. villosum needs a well-defined dormant period to stimulate flowering. Stop fertilization and grow drier and colder than usual in late fall. Nighttime temperature during this period should be under 60°F. Resume regular watering, fertilizer, and temperature once a bud appears. Excellent for windowsill or under light culture. Produces a long-lasting, waxy, large, green flower on a tall, erect spike in early spring. The rare alba form of this species is the foundation of all complex (a.k.a. Bulldog) Paphs.
