The species of Paphiopedilum, are commonly called as 'Lady's or Venus's Slipper' orchids. The plants are characterized by their luxuriant and multicoloured flowers with shoe-shaped labellum or synsepalum, a structure unique to orchids that is formed by the fusion of two lateral sepals. The flowers have long vase life, and they remain on the plant m...
