This is a discussion on Blc. Ports of Paradise 'Emerald Isle' within the Cattleyas, Vandas, Dendrobiums IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; I found one! I found one! I found one! Enjoy!...
I found one! I found one! I found one!
I love this one! Unfortunately I lost mine Yours is lovely.
Thanks Bill, hope you can find a good replacement!
Alex, I coveted this plant many years ago. I remember when you had to be RICH to afford one. I wanted one so bad and could not afford one for years. In thinking back I wonder what happened to my plant? I haven't had one for years.
Lovely blooms. Congrats on them!
Congrats Alex ! I consider 'Emerald Isle' the best of Ports of Paradise. I have the 'Gleneyrie's Green Giant' var.
Lovely cattleya!! Blc. Ports of Paradise is an excellent hybrid that produces such beautiful, large blooms. Congratulations!
Alex congrats love the green color....cool.
Thanks everyone! Cathy, I got my plant for free! I had a coupon.
Hope you can find a good one. Thanks Zainal for the comment!
Thanks Bruce, smells good too!
Thanks Cathy, hope you can find one!
Thanks Yew, I saw several cultivars, the emerald Isle is my favorite!
Alex, you forgot something...It should read FCC/AOS immediately after Emerald Isle. This means: First Class Certificate. This orchid is truly the best of the best. Now, go put that FCC/AOS on the tag! You got yourself a real deal...Betty
Hi Alex your Ports of Paradise is beautiful. I have the same one according to the tag but I "think" mine has a more fimbriated lip. Sorry I don't have a picture of it
I also notice the stems holding up the flowers on mine are very weak and have to be supported but a beautiful flower regardless. Do you guys have the same problem?
