I am interested in terrestrial orchids used in the landscape and would like to see a video on dividing and planting Cypripedium.

This video will give you some answers on the best way to plant a slipper orchid. At least it's a good start to your overall journey!

Goodluck

Thank you Valerie for your direction. I found even more postings from Mr. Cypman. He really has it going on! Any ideas on why we don't see more Cypripediums in the landscapes?

I do think that most people think that orchids are 'difficult' which is perhaps why they are not a natural choice.

In fact, the orchid family is the largest group of plants in the Plant Kingdom - there are more different species of orchids than any other plant, and they are truly cosmopolitan. This means that you will find them on all continents, all over the world!

They are a fascinating group of plants and richly deserve better exposure.
