Paphiopedilum armeniacum is a fantastic species with striking, bright yellow flowers. These are the most brilliant yellows you will find among Paphs.
This species comes from relatively high elevations in China, where it is subjected to a cold, dry winter monsoon. The plants grow on limestone so they appreciate extra calcium. You can find more details about its habitat on Jay’s site.
We grow Paphiopedilum armeniacum in moderate to bright light. They are kept near our complex Paphs in the nursery and are planted in a well drained potting mix.
