In our cultivation we apply the following principles:

Recommended substrate    Low in organic matter and has good draining soil (argex, pearlstone or vulca stone). It is important not only that the rhizomes of the Cypripedium do not desiccate in summer but also that they are not immersed in winter.
Hardy Orchids must grow in  shady place.

We never expose potted Hardy Orchids to full sun (between 10:00 to 16:00 hours) but we place them where they receive early morning or late afternoon sun.

We don't give any fertilizer.

In the winter we keep the plants outside because they need frost.

Sometimes happens that after replanting the plant, it goes into a state of rest. Then the leaves fade and the plant looks weak. It is very easy to see if everything is okay. You  can remove it from soil and check the bulb or rhizome.

Cypripedium has rhizomes, not bulbs.
