    1-month later bump. I've found disa, but finding anyone that knows or has bartholina is mission impossible.

    I was growing a Disa unifora but it died on me. I had it potted it sphag and sitting in RO water.
    It slowly started dying on me. It was either low humidity or too much heat. Then I put it in a glass vase to increase humidity, but in turn that would have also caused low air circulation. So I don't know how I killed it anymore.
    A healthy plant will send out many plantlets and they only take one year to develop as a seedling to blooming sized plant. I think I read somewhere that some species need a cool rest period, but disa uniflora does not
