This is my first Disa to flower , Disa kewensis 'Mandarin'. Not the largest of flowers, but quite pretty. Sorry not quite in focus.
Peter, Alton.

I guess Disas have moved on quite away since I sold all my plants. But in my mind I can picture the greenhouse where I grew them, and its the small one near the house at Stratford on Avon, which I left in 1985... So, no wonder.
That dorsal sepal, or petal or whatever, with the spots is quite nice. There were no spotted ones that I can recall, back then.
Jolly nice foliage you have there too. I think you must have it just right. Congrats, thet are not the easiest of things.

Geoff.....Thanks for your kind comments on my first Disa to flower. Kept at minimum 2C in winter
and water is freshly distilled. I add water to the trays the plants are in every day until it overflows.
The time will come when the present growth dies down and new growths are formed. Then I will start to think I might be able to grow them. Time will tell.
Thanks again.
Peter, Alton.
