Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: A new species to cultivation originally found by ourselves in the Hoang Lien high mountains of northern Vietnam in the autumn of 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.
