Disa atricapilla


Recommended Posts

A winter growing Disa, it requires a dry summer rest. The buds seem to take forever to open. One not to grow in a Sarracenia lagoon.

The flowers are 1" (2.5 cm) across. I don't have any winter growing Drosera but it sat in a cold greenhouse all last winter.

Very nice!

Do they smell?

 

I've not noticed a nose on them. 

That goes back to an old music hall joke.

 

Comic - My dog had his nose bitten off

Straight man - How does he smell

Comic - Terribly

 

There is no discernible scent

41 days after the first flower opened it's still looking good. What has happened since the last flower opened is that the flowers have begun to separate vertically.

 

Please excuse image quality, it's windy out there (and the spiderlings have been busy).

Now I need to ask how I'm supposed to give it a dry late spring/summer rest when it's in full flower and seed production?
