I'm looking for orchid friends in Paphiopedilums

Please let me know how to grow Paph in room.


@I hope that you could give me some advice on my paphiopedilum. I'm a complete novice to them but I loved them.I got one last year with beautifully mottled leaves. Now, I have a trouble. One of the older plants has leaves turning yellowish and now, it's turning brown. Is it normal. It has some new growths but it don't really much like the adult plants. The leaves are much smaller and are lighter in colour. One of the leaves also turns brown like the one. What's wrong. And what must be the suitable temperature to grow them. What about light?Can they be left outdoors in a tropical country.These questions may seem silly to you but I'm a real complete novice.Hope you'll reply soon...
