These exotic beauties are really easy to grow and very rewarding but you need to follow a few simple rules if you want it to bloom.
The potting soil mixture should not be allowed to become stale, this is very important.
They like to be put in fresh potting soil at least once a year, and every six months is actually best but you call it depending on how your plant is acting out.
The key to growing lady slipper orchids is to keep a good root system, as these beautiful little orchids plants have no bulbs or stems in which to store moisture or nutrients so they can be quite sensitive.
That’s why when potting these orchid types in a proper medium it is necessary to maintain healthy roots and avoid root rot.

More Orchid Care Instructions
Some suggest potting your orchids in a mixture of fine California fir bark, peat moss, and perlite, which is very common to grow healthy orchids.
Remember when growing orchids indoors you need to provide lots of moisture and the best way to do this is to have a humidity tray or make your own by putting small gravel on the bottom of a tray kept under your orchid plant and keep the tray filled with water which when the water evaporates it rises into the plant giving it the humidity it loves.
