Paphs should be repotted every year – and may be divided – every two years. Repot immediately after blooming. Remove old mix from the roots carefully, removing any dead roots, and trim excessively long roots from the plant before repotting. To divide, firmly pull the plant apart where the leaves join at the base of the growths. Maintain divisions, or clumps, of from three to four mature growths. Pot each clump into individual pots, allowing room for two years future growth. It is important that the base of the growths be potted about 1 cm deep (no deeper) in the fresh potting mix using Outeniqua Orchids Seedling mix. Keep mix barely damp for three weeks until roots begin to grow, then continue watering normally. Lady slippers are mostly terrestrial, but they do require more aeration through the potting mix than most plants.
