| 【Objective】The study was conducted to select Paphiopedilum species that are suitable for greenhouse
cultivation, healthy growth and flowering period regulation in Chaoshan area. 【Method】Ten species including P.
primulinum, P. rothschildianum, P. dianthum, P. micranthum, P. armeniacum, P. henryanum, P. tranlimianum, P.
gratrixianum, P. charlesworthii and P. sanderianum, and seven hybrids of different types including P. Saint Swithin,
P. Prince Edward of York, P. Michael Koopowitz, P. Pink in Ecstasy, P. SCBG Yingchun, P. Pacific Shamrock and P.
Maudiae were planted in greenhouse, the main horticultural characters of Paphiopedilum such as growth situation, flowering
s tatus, flowering time, plant height, flower scape length, flower color and petal were observed and analyzed. 【Result】All
the introduced and cultivated species and hybrids can survive, except for P. micranthum and P. Prince Edward of York,
15 species or hybrids of Paphiopedilum have blossomed periodically and can adapt to local environmental conditions in greenhouse. P. Pacific Shamrock, P. Maudiae, P. Michael Koopowitz and P. SCBG Yingchun have good comprehensive
characters, their flowering period can be regulated in air-conditioned greenhouse, which are suitable for large-scale greenhouse
cultivation in Chaoshan area.【Conclusion】The introduced and cultivated Paphiopedilum species could survive in Chaoshan
area, the planting season or climate could also lead to differences in quantitative characters of some different varieties, and it
shows great differences in growth state and flowering rates of different kinds of Paphiopedilum.
