Only then can you decide on the cultural methods that best suit you and your plants.

Light:

 This species need a light level of 20000-30000 lux. Strong air movement should be ensured all the time.

Temperature:

 Similar throughout the year - average temperatures on day 25-27 ° C, average night temperatures 16-17 ° C, with an amplitude of daily fluctuations of 9-11 ° C. Due to the fact that the altitude is wide, the plants should adapt to temperatures of 4-6 ° C higher or 2-3 ° C lower than indicated.

Humidity:

 This plant need humidity of 85-90% for most of the year, with a short fall in the summer to around 80%.

Substrate and growing media:

 The substrate must always be loose, permeable, one that maintains moisture, but does not absorb. Sphagnum moss can be added to the mixture used, especially if the plants can not be watered every summer or if there is a lower humidity at the place of cultivation.
 They are very tolerant both to the excess of accumulating salts and to the decomposing substrate. Paphiopedilum lowii is able to survive the excess of salt and fertilizers, as well as the decomposing substrate better than most other species, but it should not be overly exposed for a long period of time to such conditions, because it can eventually cause problems with root rot.

Watering:

 Cultivated plants should often be watered with only slight drying between waterings.

Fertilizer:

 Plants should be fertilized every week or every two weeks with 1/10-1/4 of the recommended dose of fertilizer for orchids. The fertilizer with a high nitrogen content with fertilizer with an increased amount of phosphorus should be used alternately throughout the year.

Rest period and repotting:

 In winter, watering should be somewhat reduced, especially in the case of plants cultivated in darker conditions of a short day typical of higher latitudes, but they should not completely dry up. A short rest period is needed to initiate flowering.
 Paphiopedilum lowii orchid should be repotted every 2-3 years. Repotting is usually done in late winter or early spring.
