Known as the "Crested Paphinia" or "Lady Slipper Orchid," is a captivating orchid species found in Central and South America. Its most remarkable feature is its distinct slipper-shaped flowers, with intricate patterns and colors that resemble artwork. These blooms serve as landing platforms for pollinators, adding to their allure. While the focus is on its unique flowers, Paphinia cristata's broad, leathery leaves provide an attractive backdrop. Cultivation requires bright, indirect light, consistent moisture without waterlogging, and a well-draining orchid mix. With proper care, this orchid graces indoor spaces with its elegance and adds a touch of exotic beauty to orchid collections.
