Yellow Slipper Flower
Getting started -- Your plant was grown in filtered light, not direct sun, so it should be acclimated to direct sun slowly, over a period of a few weeks. Remember that this plant does not need a lot of sun to be happy.
A 1-3 gallon (4-12 liter) pot can hold it the first 6-12 months. If you're in a warmer climate, use an oversized pot to keep the roots cooler.
Watering -- Aim to keep the soil evenly moist (but not soggy). Don't let it dry out.
Climate - The Slipper Flower prefers mild temperatures and cool nights. It might not thrive if temperatures regularly get above 85°F (29°C), especially if nights are above 65°F (18°C). I don't think it can handle frost. It prefers dappled sun or bright shade, and needs protection from strong afternoon sun. Over about 50% humidity is best. If it seems to suffer from low humidity indoors, consider using an ultrasonic humidifier, from home improvement stores or some thrift shops.
The shoots may be tied to a trellis, sent up into neighboring bushes, or allowed to trail along the ground. You may prune any shoots that grow too long. When you trim back a branch, new growth will sprout from the nodes below it, making it bushier.
Fertilizing -- Calceolaria has average fertilizing needs.
Bugs to watch for -- Look for any pests that can affect your other plants.
