Paphiopedilum, commonly known as the 'Slipper Orchid', is a remarkable variety of orchid, known for its beautiful and unusual flowers. The helenae is a miniature variety of Paph. native to Northern Vietnam. It produces a stunning yellow toned flower, with subtle fuschia-violet hues over the labellum and petals, which is perfectly contrasted by narrow, emerald green leaves. Sure to be a show-stopper in any collection, the Paph. helenae is a must have for all orchid enthusiasts.
Requires a bright, filtered light, sheltered from direct sun. Use a small-grade orchid bark, and water regularly in warmer months, allowing water to drain completely from the pot. Reduce watering in cooler months to prevent chances of fungal issues. Fertilise with an orchid specific fertiliser fortnightly throughout spring and summer.
