Disas from back in the day
Posted 18 March 2012 - 18:33 PM
Fortunately, a year later, I moved back near the coast, so the summer months no longer kill them off. However, we do get winter freezing, where the top layer of the medium is solid ice. Some leaves get burned from the cold, which makes them produce smaller plants and flowers. Fortunately, they survive and don't get killed from the cold.
Anyhow, enjoy these photos I dug up from my old photo library:
Disa 1104, originally from Asuka, I think it's a pure uniflora:
Disa 122(the red one on the right)-I've used this for breeding. While the shape was nothing to rave about, the size of the flowers, number of flowers per spike, overall vigor and color transferred over to the offspring. This clone died since it was a seedling without a tuber:

My favorite D. kewensis Unfortunately, no tuber was formed:
