First foray into Disas for me, and the first to start blooming:
It’s in a net pot, in live sphagnum.
Cool bloom!! Your thread title resembles desiderata
Wow. Great to see it in cultivation. Where did you get it?
Congrats on your growing skills.
Wonderful bright, cheery color.
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.
Great. Thank you, Tyrone!
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.
