Cc: ( Cypripedium calceolus and related species in cultivation )
Plants grow in cool climate in open woodland conditions: semishade and always slightly moist conditions.Compost should never dry out. Good drainage is important. Compost: 3 parts pumice gravel with some perlite and Seramis, 1 part limestone, some clay gravels, small amounts ( 5% ) of organic additives such as cocos fibres.

Cd: ( Cypripedium debile )
As Cl but with only 5 % limestone 

Ck: ( Cypripedium kentuckiense and californicum )
general rules as for other Cypripediums but compost : coarse river sand with 5% limestone and 5% cocos fibers. Both species like more water than most other Cyps and prefer stronger fertilization.

Cl: ( Cypripedium margaretaceum, daliense and other bifoliate Cyps )
rules as with other Cyps but these group is more sensitive to moisture in wintertime. You have to cover plants against to much rain but donít let dry out compost. This should be same as Cc but instead clay gravels 10 % of Akadama  a ( clay relative in Bonsai culture ) is more suitable. A exellent drainage is important and plants are growing more shady.

Cr: ( Cypripedium reginae and related plants )
More sun as other Cypripediums and more moist conditions. Roots are very close to surface. Soil  should be always moist. Compost as for Cc but with 10% limestone .

T: ( Calopogon, Cypripedium acaule, Liparis, Calochilus )
Plants are growing in spagnum bogs. Best way is to cultivate them in living spaghnum in a artifical bog. Calochilus tubers should be dry during rest period and may not be hardy
