Dear Claudio,

The climate of Northern Italy should be OK for Cypripedium hybrids. Cyps only don't like the Mediterranean climate with long periods of temperatures above 30°C in the summer and low humidity of air and soil. During winter they don't need a snow cover and temperatures below +5°C are enough for their dormancy. If you plant them on the North facing side of a building or in the shade of a tree you can be sure that they will grow well. Keep the soil slightly moist during dry periods in summer and fertilize regularly. That's all!


Good luck with your orchids

Michael
