    Default Disa Helmut 'Meyer'

    Its been a while since i have posted any new blooms on here! Its been a busy spring-i just put in a new vege garden with all sorts of weirdo fruit and veg, and a new fig tree i am training into an Espalier fan across the fence.....Not much time to take pictures. But tonight shall be the night! The night i take photos....

    This is a first time flowering division of mine, and boy, is she a beauty! I just grow mine in pure sphagnum moss, in a dish of water about an inch deep with my Sarracenia on the windowsill. It enjoys the extra warmth and the sunlight-almost direct morning sun, the blinds provide SOME protection!

    Beautiful Disa Jordan, love it! Great color! Haven't got any Disa yet, I'd like to have Disa lugens because of its elaborate lip

    That is one i would LOVE to have! I honestly think im going to specialise in these beautiful plants-i know a guy who grows them, as well as cymbidiums and sarcs, and another guy who is selling his whole collection before he dies....apparently he is asking a "resonable" price......

    I have not the good conditions to grow Disa, and I appreciate to see one in bloom. This flower is wonderful.

    Great bloom Jordan. Disa are often sold as 'hardy' orchids here in the UK. Having seen yours, I might try one in the bog garden next year.

    Dont give it bog conditions, the dislike stagnant water. Just grow it in a dish and keep the water topped up to an inch high. Drain every few days, or use a hydroponic system to grow them-some people use plastic kitty litter trays with one corner tipped down the slightest angle, with a drain hole in it. Water is introduced along all four sides using the same equipment as a standard gutter type hydroponic system
