    I have been waiting for a week or so for my spatulata flowers to open up. I read on past articles that sometimes they only open in the morning, so I got up to check early this morning and they still looked the same. I have a picture of them, how they start out and how they look after a little bit. And I was just wondering if they had already opened and I missed them. Here they are:



    Here is a larger, Hi res picture:

    Did I miss them flowering already? It looks like it will open, and will be a light pink coloer, and then it turns into that darker pointed tip. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    The most I have ever caught mine is about half-open. If you blink, you might miss it, it seems. If one looks like it is about to open, I always forget and come back too late. If you check fairly often, you will most likely see it. I don't know if mine open earlier or later in the morning, or even in the afternoon. They are just so quick!

    Yeah, you missed all the older ones. The current bud with the arrow is as open as that one will be. My plants flower best in the early morning, say 8 AM, on days of sun and high humidity. Light is an issue, if the plants don't get enough of it the petals will not open. In any event, seed will be produced.

    Thanks guys. Your flowers look nice Hellz. That's too bad I missed those. I do check real often. Usually not up real early.......on summer vacation from college [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I did get up and check it at 6:30 this morning and they were still closed.

    Wow Spec! That must be a sight to see! That would make a good picture too.

    They get a pretty good amount of light. The flowers themselves don't get alot of humidity since they have grown tall enough to be out of the terrarium, but the plant itself gets pretty good humdity while the sun is shining directly on it.....up until about 2 o'clock or so. I was hoping for some nice macro pics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] But I guess as long as I get seeds.......that's what counts. Thanks for the help guys.
