Disa racemosa is a disa species found in South Africa.
Plant blooms in the spring with a single 5 cm wide flower.
Plants are found growing in the swampy areas of South Africa along streams at elevations of 250 to 1500 meters
Keep tubers loose in sphagnum moss and plant in a mixture of sphagnum moss and perlite. Plant should be kept cool and in partial to full sun. Keep pot sitting in about 2 inches distilled water and change periodically. Always use purified water because plant is sensitive to minerals and repot annually. Avoid fertilization or use extremely less than recommended dosage. Plants require fire to bring to bloom.
