Sometimes referred to as the "Brain Pouch Paphiopedilum" for obvious reasons, the Slipper Orchid is from Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India and Nepal. It is also desirable for its beautiful foliage, a rather uncommon feature in orchids. The flowers are not large but it is easy to grow and blooms faithfully on every new growth. My plant is grown on a windowsill in moderate light and in a bark mix.
