Paphiopedilum are one of the most endangered plant species in the world as a result of over-collection, loss of suitable habitats and difficulty of propagatation, all wild species are listed in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Appendix I and their trade is prohibited. Successful propagation techniques are beneficial to germplasm resources protection and sustainable utilization. In this paper, the propagation technologies in vitro on asepsis sowing, symbiotic seed germination and tissue culture of Paphiopedilum were reviewed and the existing problems and solutions were put forward in order to provide reference for the further research on the propagation technology in vitro and the large-scale production of high-quality seedlings of the genus.

Key words: Paphiopedilum, asepsis sowing, symbiotic seed germination, tissue culture, rapid propagation
