Please read this article about Pink Lady Slipper. They do not transport well and their seeds are not usually viable due to the need of living symbiotically. They are beautiful but not usually sustainable unless planted by nature. There are other lady slippers that can be grown that are beautiful. Do a search for those.

Hi Joseph,

Are you after Cypripedium acaule in particular, or just any pink slipper orchid? There are a wide range of Paphiopedilums that are available.
