Disa bivalvata



Archive entry 12.12.10

20th April 2010


A winter growing species from the Cape where it grows from sea level to 2000m. I have been trying some of the less usual Disa species and I had hoped that this one might be a good prospect for a cold greenhouse. I was delighted to be able to buy some young plants in a flask and they weaned into compost without too many problems.

Unfortunately December demonstrated that it isn't hardy (at least this one isn't). It is possible that seed from plants at high elevations might be better.
