Product Description

Details

  • This plant likes to be placed on a somewhat cooler place.
  • Pay attention! Plants and orchids are living organisms that need good care.

Cypripedium is the king of hardy orchids. Most varieties can easily handletemperatures of -25°C. This variety has its origins in Canada and the Northwestern United States. There is even one European breed, the Cypripedium calceolus, which is protected and subject to continuous camera surveillance in Great Britain. Cypripedium is also known as ‘Venus shoe’. In 2018, Anthura and the Swiss Orchid Foundation planted approximately 3,000 Cypripedium calecolus in the wild in Switzerland as part of a reintroduction project. 

The flower of the reginae is beautifully pink with white and in combination with the green leaves it is a beautiful appearance in the garden. Both the stem and the leaves of the reginae are hairy and the plant can reach a height of 35-50 cm. Their large root system looks like spaghetti. Sometimes the roots push the growing points out of the soil, so that they can dry out quickly. Mixing perlite through the substrate can remedy this. 

The orchid is resistant to very low temperatures at rest. However, if the shoot starts to grow, late night frost can cause damage. If late frost is predicted, it is smart to cover the plant, to protect them against the cold. Particularly in the first year, be careful with night frost because the plant has not yet been able to adapt to the climate in the garden. In the following year, the plant has had time to adjust and it will be less or hardly bothered by late frost.
