This is Saint Swithin, philippinense "Super Long Petals" x roth "Leo" SM/JOGA. I purchased it as a seedling several years ago from Sam at a show in Ohio. The dorsal is about 5 cm wide and the petals are 21 cm long, with a nice twist. This is the first bloom and there are just 3 flowers, but to be honest, I greatly stressed the plant last year with far too much light. Mike

that's nice. I dont think I've seen this particular cross flower before. Looks to have a white back ground which shows off the stripes.

That's really beautiful ! I like especially the deep chocolate colouration of the flowers.
