    You've got it! Rsc. Ports of Paradise = Rsc. Fortune x Rl. Digbyana

    This is very similar to Rlc. Ports of Paradise 'Gleneyrie's Green Giant' FCC/AOS. Perhaps not that clone (it may be too big), perhaps not even that hybrid, but something very similar - at least half Rl. digbyana and a lot of C. dowiana.

    Thank you everyone. I have a seedling Ports of Paradise also, which is probably not going to live long enough to bloom, so this is true instant gratification!

    I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get Orchidwiz installed (after having it for 4 months or so, it's about time).

    Where is Michael Saar when you need him? He'd probably have it solved in 30 seconds.
