    Default Blc. Ports of Paradise 'Green Ching Hua' AM/AOS

    I had no clue what this plant was when my good friend gifted it to me a while back (as the label had been lost). I am very happy with the nice surprise. What's not too love about this hybrid? It has everything I look for: intense Chartreuse color, 6" blooms, and a lemony daytime fragrance to die for.

    Very pretty flower!!! I had none a month ago and I was advised by another OrchidTalk member that this one is a "must have" so I bought two... Hope to see blooms next year at least on one of them. Thanks for sharing!
