    Default Blc. Ports of Paradise 'Emerald Isle'

    This plant is just a blooming idiot! A spike with 2 blooms just finished, two blooms open now, and a third spike should open in the next week. This guy has over 20 pbulbs and is growing in 3 directions. I swear it is getting divided after the last blooms this time, even if more new ones are on the way.

    Diane the coloring on yours is spectacular! Where did you get it ?!
    I was thinking about getting this plant but I hear that the flowers turn yellow after a few days, true ?

    The flowers do slowly fade to yellow, as the fragrance increases in strength.

    The Pot. was lovely.

    Diane, when you divide this one, you can update the tag as well. The name has been changed to: Rhynchosophrocattleya Ports of Paradise (Rhynchosophrocattleya Fortune x Rhyncholaelia digbyana)

    It is a beauty!

    Cheers,

    ugh, recalcitrant orchids like these that just keeps blooming need to be taught a lesson... umm... not sure what though... and it's so pretty that, well... maybe it's ok to flower again just one more time...
