Disporopsis bodinieri - FMWJ13457

Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Price: £12.00
Description:
One of our collections of this new species to cultivation gathered with Aaron Floden and Tom Mitchell from our 5-Fingers trek in the Hoang Lien mountains of northern Vietnam in 2011. Although I had collected it in a different are of the same mountain range in 2007. Obviously a close relative to D. fusco-picta as it shares the distinct feature of moniliform rhizomes (like a string of beads). Another shared feature are the larger flowers, which like all species are held in the leaf axils. However the foliage is distinct in quantity of narrowly ovate evergreen leaves, with usually pronounced undulation to the rim. A slow growing species for us which can eventually attain a height of 80cm. Easily grown in a moisture retentive drained soil in full to light shade.
