Just got a few cuttings of this no ID Dischia from an orchid vendor. Flowers are pretty and deep fuschia color , born singly along the stem. Stem feels a bit rough, may be tiny coarse hair. I see no hair on back or front of leaves but may be they are not mature enough. Does anyone know the name? Is it Hirsuta?

Just found this site, looks exactly like mine.....http://angio.bergianska.se/Bilder/asterids/Rubiales/Apocynaceae/Dischidia/
I do not see hair on leaves in their pic, may be there are 2 different hirsutas Confused

Thanks. Agree with attractive color.That is why I got it. Smiling
I edited the leaf picture in my photo library and was able to see minute white hair towards leaf margin. So may be a hirsuta? I think there is also a red leaf variety and flower may be of different color.
Seems like I am IDing it myself ..... wonder if there is any Dischidia growers here that could help.

It's all about choices.
There is a good site, http://www.dischidia.com - still should be active. Put up by a fellow named Antone Jones who now works at Tropiflora and he knows a lot about them.
Leap. The net will appear.

You could call Tropiflora and ask to speak to him. We aren't friends, no need to mention my name.
