🌸 Description: Experience the captivating allure of the Paphiopedilum Annabellchen, a remarkable orchid hybrid that beautifully combines the elegance of Paph. liemianum and the delicacy of Paph. delenatii. This exquisite "primary hybrid," created by the skilled hands of H. Doll in 1997, is a masterpiece that embodies the essence of two distinct orchid species.

🌱 Cultivation Tips: Discover the secrets to nurturing your Paphiopedilum Annabellchen to thrive and flourish as it would in its natural lithophytic habitat. As a lithophyte, this orchid finds its home on rocks, deriving nutrients and moisture from the air and the surfaces it graces.

Follow these essential cultivation tips to ensure your Annabellchen's success:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic the filtered sunlight these orchids receive on rocky surfaces. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a consistent temperature range of 60-75°F (15-24°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. This mimics the cool to moderate climate these orchids prefer.

  3. Humidity: Orchids adore humidity, so aim for around 50-70%. If the air in your home is dry, use a humidifier or place a tray of water near the orchid to elevate moisture levels.

  4. Watering: Allow the potting medium to dry slightly between waterings. Water thoroughly, but ensure the roots don't sit in standing water. This replicates the way lithophytes collect water from rain and dew.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining mix formulated for orchids, such as bark or sphagnum moss. This prevents waterlogging and allows air to reach the roots.

  6. Fertilization: Provide a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or halt fertilization during the rest period (fall and winter).

  7. Repotting: Annabellchen orchids appreciate repotting every 1-2 years or when the potting medium breaks down. Choose a pot that accommodates the growth of the plant while maintaining a snug fit.

  8. Air Circulation: Proper air circulation prevents stagnant air and fungal issues. Position the orchid where gentle air movement is present.
