How do you care for Lady Slipper succulents?

Additionally, how much water does a lady slipper plant need?

Water once established: Once a month to weekly depending on location, temperature, and pot size. Soil: Very well drained, dry, low in organic content, pH 6.1-8.5 (slightly acidic to alkaline).

Correspondingly, how do you plant Pedilanthus Macrocarpus? Plant in full sun in cool coastal climates but looks best if given some light shade in hot inland climates. Requires very little irrigation even in containers where watering every 2 to 3 weeks is sufficient.

Likewise, people ask, is Lady Slipper toxic?

According to the Continental Kennel Club, orchids are generally considered nontoxic to dogs if eaten. However, the University of California, Davis lists the lady slipper orchid (Cypripedium spp.) as being mildly toxic to dogs and people, causing skin dermatitis if touched and possibly irritation of the mouth if eaten.
