    This is the first disa I’ve tried in a while, group order nyeric and I got from wally orchard. The stem is crooked since I was growing it on short shelves in my bedroom, and the spike was growing up under the upper shelf; i was turning the pot to try and keep straight

    Yesterday. I’m not sure I’m the greatest disa grower, but I did heed wally’s suggestion about if you want a disa flower and keep the plant alive, buy one of a certain age. This one was indicated likely to flower and be healthy rather than the medium or small ones. I have it in a tray that holds pure r/o water and lots of media in a clay pot. Kept it away from bugs, no fert
    It does have a light, nice fragrance

    Congrats on the flower. That reminds me, how are its companions- wasabi?

    Closeup of the flower center.
    About the wasabi, I had two plants. One suffered a bit when I was away, it died. The other was doing okay and then two days ago I saw the tray it was in had dried out and the plant was limp :eek: . I watered and when I get home I’ll see if the plant popped back
    A plant I gave to a coworker he was keeping in at the time, 80+F apt and it rotted. One I gave to cousins wife, it died. I gave one to my sister, she said it was languishing and had fruit flies (maybe fungus gnats). Nyeric has the other, have to see if his is alive

    Gorgeous flower Charles. I'm impressed. I'd love
    to try to grow 'em, but I'm scared to even try.
