It is a very old hybrid but remakes are now being offered.
I guess that the best ones will be very colorful and nice, but could also be quite ugly?
I just can't really picture the outcome in my head.

Maybe, even verging on the border of revolting?
The naturally occuring hybrid of Roth x dayanum, i.e. P. x kimballianum, is so much nicer!
I think roth x dayanum would be quite nice. I mean the good ones at least.
There is this person who presents a very nice roth x curtisii at the local show here and it is quite something.
Everything about the plant is big. Big leaves, thick inflorescence and huge commanding flowers!
I would think roth x dayanum cross probably looks similar.

Paphiopedilum Jupite could be also a beauty. But it is very lazy to make flowers.
Here two different clones. Both are rothschildianum X hookerae.

About Paph. Kimballianum. Most of the clones are noct so beautiful, especially not so colorful like Jupiter.
When you are interested in rothschildianum.hybrids you can look in my book with most of the primaries of rothschildianum.
Here a typical Paph. Kimballianum (rothschildianum X dayanum and a picture of my book about rothschildianum
