Repotting: It is important to repot the Paphiopedilum in orchid soil once every three years, or sooner if the soil has decomposed.
Use an airy soil mixture for the Paphiopedilum that is specially suitable for orchids; never place the Paphiopedilum in potting soil.
After flowering, cut off the flower stem. The orchid produces a new flower bud from the new shoots. This takes on average about eight to twelve months. As plants grow older, more and more shoots appear and the Paphiopedilum also blooms with multiple flowers.
