First of all this website, Slipperiana (formerly known as PhragWeb), is a non-commercial hobby project. It is intended as a collection of data concerning the orchid genera belonging to the subfamily Cypripedioideae, the slipper orchids.

The website was established on the 7th of March 1998 carrying the name PhragWeb. Ever since I have been adding data each time new information came to my knowledge and my spare time allowed it. As a consequence updates were and will be irregular. After a quiet period of several years the website underwent a major overhaul and was relaunched in 2016 with its current name Slipperiana.

My name is Rob Zuiderwijk. I'm just a hobbyist who loves plants and orchids in particular.
I'm not all-knowing so please feel free to contact me with any corrections, suggestions, additional or new information or other on-topic matters that might need attention on this website.

Thank you for visiting my website.
