Paphiopedilum acmodontum is a wonderful small species from the Philippines. It has compact foliage and delightful pink and green flowers that appear from winter through spring. The foliage is also quite attractive so you have a nice plant to look at when it isn’t in bloom. This is a great species for growing under lights or on a windowsill.
This species is easy to grow. Just keep it warm and give it moderate light. It appreciates the same conditions as most other mottled leaf species and hybrids. You can find more specifics on our culture page.
