    Default Rlc. Ports of Fortune




    This hybrid is tagged Rlc. Ports of Fortune (Rlc. Ports of Paradise x Rlc. Fortune). The color of the petals leans toward chartreuse rather than mint green, and the lip is chartreuse at its greatest depth, and then becomes gold with dark red veining and edging. It has a lot of C. dowiana in it, which I think is pretty well-represented in the bloom. It is, make no mistake, a floofy, but it's a stunning one. The blooms are 8" across and 6.5" down; the lip itself is 4". It absolutely electrifies my living room, and the beautiful lemony scent is just icing on the cake. Not exactly where my interests have been heading (towards species catts), but I couldn't resist this one....

    (This last photo is a tad yellower than it should be - the other shots are pretty accurate.)

    To be completely honest in the past I never thought a green flower on a plant would be that interesting , but orchids sure have change my way of thinking and your little beauty is another thumbs up for green flowering plants everywhere . Great job , it's beautiful.
