Three photos above 05 AUG 2007
Four days later (09 AUG 2007) - Scape measured at 17 inches from top of pot. Flower was fully open when I started to setup the camera. By the time this shot was taken, it had closed to this point. By the time I returned the plant to its growing spot the flower was closed... 1/2 hour probably.
