Paphiopedilum, found in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia reaching as far north as southern China, are commonly known as Slipper Orchids. Paphiopedilum is quite easy to cultivate and therefore is popular among orchid enthusiasts. Grow them outdoors in sheltered, shady corners of your garden, or indoors in the cooler parts of the house.
