    You can try giving it more sunlight...you should tell us your growing conditions.

    Pictures are always a big help as well, but I see that you're in the Northeast US so you still have some time before it opens. I'm in the midwest and I do not have any open yet either.

    Flowers sometimes abort for no apparent reason.

    But it could be damage from insects, weather, disease, lack of water etc.

    You said in another thread that you bought the plant with the flower stalk already grown, right? That means it either aborted or postponed opening the flower because it is getting used to its new conditions.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Oh, thanksthe yellow dart. But i seriously think it's dying off. Ill show a pic later, but anyways i have it outside whenever it's not too windy, b/c i have a lowes greehouse (see my thread in terrariums and greenhouses.) So hopefully it's good, but it's browning.

    I'm thinking a significant change to its conditions put the flowering past its comfort zone and just plain died. Next year...

    I agree..its really of no concern..
    especially considering the plant already had the flower stalk when you bought it..
    it could be dying off just due to rapid changes in growing conditions..
    not a big deal.

    the plant itself will probably be fine, as long as you get it out in the sun as soon as its warm enough.
