"This evergreen, terrestrial orchid grows under perennially wet or moist conditions. It is found along stream banks, waterfalls or wet cliffs on Table Mountain and other mountain localities of the Western Cape. Disas require a cool environment with average temperatures ranging between 10-26°C. Disas can however tolerate summer temperatures above 30°C, provided they have adequate moisture, humidity and free air movement. A well drained, coarse growing medium contributes to the continual flow of moisture, nutrients and efficient aeration to the plant. Disas prefer partial shade, but good light conditions are essential for flowering and to enhance rich flower colour. The roots must never be allowed to dry out, but overwatering or stagnation must also be avoided. Never use water with a high pH. The pH value should range between 5 and 6.8."
