Hello Tom,

I live in Nagoya, Japan. We have similar climate. We have to grow Cyps in pots. The compost is Cryptomoss. It's made of Cryptomeria and Cypress bark (see photos below). If you use soil and sand, the roots getting rot in summer.

I send the Cyps wind by fan from Apr. to Oct.. And I use refrigerater for Cyp. guttatum and Cyp. yatabeanum from Nov. to Feb.. They need long cold term. But I keep other species and Cv. at north shade place. You can grow macranthos, speciosum, hotei-atsumorianum, rebunense, segawai, henry, candidum, parviflorum, pubescens, calceolus, reginae, flavum, etc.

You should better contact Mr. Mogami. His nursery is specialized in Cypripedium. You can get many information that you grow Cyps in warm area.
Minax Bio Farm Co., Ltd.

Kind regards
