still opening its larger today, and im beginning to see more of the innards , but may need a bit more info than what ive read here , not to be stupid but im just not sure i understand the process, there is another bloom starting to open too. so i should have plenty of time to pollinate , as the other sarr blooms in my collection arnt even close to opening yeat. also will I need to protect the bloom after it has been pollinated. so it wont get crossed later as the other blooms open?
thanks for any advice and interest in my plant

it actually is starting to color up too, getting some orange and red to the lower petals.
