These are all Disa uniflora hybrids. The dark red comes from Disa cardinalis, and the ability to have more than one bloom per spike comes from Disa tripetaloides. The plants pictured are the result of perhaps a dozen different generations of crossing and back crossing, and they keep getting better!

If they keep on getting better, I can't wait 'till next year! :D

beautiful pic manders-thanks for sharing! I'm surprised that Disas aren't grown by too many CP'ers...

Anyone else have pics to share? Would love to see more!

Your orchids are very beautiful. The vivid colors and the healthy appearance indicate that you are a person very careful in dealing with these plants.

Thank you for showing us these wonderful pictures.

Best regards,

Rodrigo
