Planting and Growing Tips Lady Slipper Orchids – Cypripediums and Pink Jack-in-the- Pulpit (Cobra Lily) Please take the time and care necessary to plant your lady slipper orchids and/or Arisaema bulbs. When properly planted and cared for, the plants will not only grow well but thrive. Your Lady Slippers are arriving as a bare root. These have recently been dug or harvested. Please plant immediately upon arrival as they need to get acclimated for next season. They have already formed their new root balls and buds. Any plants that are green or have leaves may die back in a few weeks. Do not worry, they have not died. This is all normal. These are older plants at near bloom or bloom stage, but please follow instructions for optimal success in the transplanting process. Planting: Do not expose roots to direct sunlight or drying winds; doing so can be fatal to your plants. Lady Slippers should be planted with their buds/root balls just below the surface (1/2 inch) and a layer of mulch 1 to 2 inches deep should be put over the top. They should be planted with their roots spread out in the top 1/2 inch of the soil. Their roots tend to grow horizontally and only go deeper in dry conditions. Light: Morning or evening sun is okay, but plants should be shaded midday. High, open shade, open woodlands or the shade of the north side of a building will work very well. Soil: The soil should be evenly moist but well-drained with lime added. Depending on the soil you are starting with, you may want to augment it. If your soil is heavy clay you will want to loosen it up by adding river sand, humus, or compost. If, on the other hand, your soil is a dry, open, sandy type, you would want to add loam or humus. Mulch: A layer of mulch is very important. You can use bark, or bark with pine needles on top. It will keep the soil cool and evenly moist. The soil should not be allowed to dry out completely, especially during the first year, as plants are getting established. Once the ground has started to freeze, we recommend adding a layer of straw or pine boughs to provide additional winter protection. Fertilizer: When planted in a good, rich soil, fertilizer is not necessary. If you want to fertilize apply only a 1/4 strength liquid fertilizer every 7-10 days from Spring through mid-August. A yearly dusting of lime is always helpful. Watering: Please resist the urge to over-water! These plants like an evenly moist soil and should be watered only through dry periods, such as late summer or lightly misted. Like most other perennials, they should never be allowed to completely dry out. If doing a fall dormant planting, do not water until next season. Will I see them this season? You may or may not depending on the individual root acclimation. Some will pop up this year but if yours does not, do not worry, they will be up next spring! Arisaema bulbs should be planted about 3 inches deep with the tips pointed up, even if that means the bulb is on its side. Lady Slipper Varieties: have different arrival times, so if you have ordered more than one variety, these will ship according to harvest. You will receive shipping notification via e-mail when they are on their way to you! Thank You for Your Order and Enjoy Your Lady Slippers! Please Be Patient!
