This nice plant (no name) came from Rob-Rah originally, and has taken a while to settle in to my growing conditions. I seem to have the hang of it now as it has flowered for the first time, a few weeks ahead of my other Disa hybrid. Difficult to capture the colour accurately on my Phone but you get the idea.

That's lovely!

If it was from me then it is one of Disa uniflora, Disa Wilferd Duckitt or Disa Watsonii - that last is pink though. I'd guess D. uniflora from the pic though.

Wow, what a super big flower! The pink is mesmerising.
I have three disas in bud this year, including the orange uniflora.
Usually they flower every two years for me but a Disa watsonii that flowered last year has a bud this year (well, one of the original plant's baby's does, to be more precise).
Nice pellies too. It's not 'Ardens', is it?
