If you read my first mail in this series, it tells about what species occur in India in wild. All those species are protected under the Wildlife Protection Act of India, Schedule 6. That means, strict ban on extraction from wild and a person doing so can be jailed.
Unfortunately the act applies only to the Paphiopedilums
and not to Cypripediums although at first the text in the Act had the word LADY SLIPPER ORCHIDS, which includes all. http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/4ab4d87e9a8402bc/8d60133f63985260?lnk=gst&q=lady+slipper+orchids#8d60133f63985260

Apart from these, there is no end to the hybrids which are being cultivated in Indian Gardens. I have a friend in pune …, he is crazy collector of Paphiopedilums from all over the world. There are many such persons.

C. cordigerum, C. elegans, C. guttatum and C. himalaicum and Pahphiopedilum represented by 9 species (P. charlesworthii, D. druryi, P. farrieanum, P. hirsutissimum, P. insigne, P. spicerianum, P. venustum, P. wardii)
