    A diminutive Disa species. These are still young plants, but it stays quite small. Should bloom quite a bit more in the upcoming years as long as they do well.

    The flowers are a bit over ½" tall and long lasting (over a month). Culture is similar to Disa uniflora but shadier and drier. Intermediate to cool, bright shade, doesn't dry out too much. Light fertilizer once a month. It supposedly has a short dormancy (a month or two), during which it should be kept dry.

    That's such an awesome species. I'm always glad to see other smaller Disa species.

    Absolutely fabulous - I had to control myself from looking up photos of disa species online, because it was upsetting me that I wouldn't be able to find / grow them.
