Paphiopedilum druryi Stein
Rare species found in Southern India from the mountains at an elevation of 1400-1600 meters. Long thought to be extinct due to a fire which burned out the original collection site, it has recently been found in other locals. Likes to be dry and needs a large plant to flower. Each growth typically takes 3 years to mature and then develop a single flower.
Grow in regular Paph mix.
