A couple more plants purchased from Orchid Inn in 2019 that flowered earlier this year. I was a bit surprised by the very pendulous petals on the Saint Swithin, as plants I have seen in the past had petal stance more intermediate between the two parents.
The St. Swithin is rothschildianum 'Nextel' x philippinense 'Ching Hua #31' and the MK is philippinense 'Super Twister' x sanderianum 'Lady in Red'.

I agree with your comments regarding the St Swithin petals, but the rest of the flower is as expected. I wonder if it is typical with these parents, or just an outlier. I have a couple from Sam that should bloom soon, but none of this particular cross. Mike
