    First foray into Disas for me, and the first to start blooming:
    It’s in a net pot, in live sphagnum.

    Wow. Great to see it in cultivation. Where did you get it?

    Congrats on your growing skills.

    Thanks, everyone. I got it from Wally Orchard at Afrodisa in Oregon. It will go outside soon, coming back inside in the late fall before frost.

    Remember: you can pollinate and cut the flower and spare the plant's resources to develop a new tuber. In the heat, the plant will choose to keep the flower alive over growing a new tuber. The seed is easy to germinate on damp spaghnum moss.

    Stunning. Disa is my last dream. Specifically, D. uniflora. Your success gives me hope!

    If I recall correctly, seed pod maturation time is 40 days.
