Cymbidium erythrostylum, native to elevations around 1500 meters in Vietnam, where it can be found growing on trees (epiphytic), on rocks (lithophytic), or in the soil (terrestrial). This fact contributes to this species’ ease of culture, as it can be grown successfully in a variety of media. Photograph by Eric Hunt.

Paphiopedilum helenae, native to north Vietnam and southern China where it can be found on limestone cliff faces in mixed and coniferous forests. It should be noted that this is the smallest species of the genus. This individual’s leaf span is only 12 cm (4.75 inches) and the height including the inflorescence is 8 cm (3.15 inches). Grown and photographed by Ron Hanko; pictures were found on his blog, Orchids in Bloom.
