Paphiopedilum Bulldog

These orchids are called "Bulldogs" for some reason.  Imposing and grand, they deserve a more important name.  I have a harder time getting them to bloom than any of the others.    In the fall they have to have night temperatures of 50 degrees or a little lower, then moved inside to at least 20 degrees higher during the day.  If you want to try one, keep it moist, watering every 3-4 days.  Direct sun not necessary, but plenty of light is.   Lots of luck!
