    NaN, so far I've missed two D. slackii flowers. I'm intent on catching the next.

    I had them opening all over the place when mine was blooming...they just seem to take forever to develop, and only open for a day.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Once they start getting pointy like the bud on the lower right it's about 5-7 days from opening. The flower didn't start to open until about 9-9:30am and wasn't fully open until about 11:30am-12pm. I didn't notice when they closed, not until late afternoon.

    As you'll recall from Robert Gibson's presentation at the ICPS conference opening and closing is highly dependent on temperature and humidity. I didn't move the plant indoors to take pictures as I didn't want the flowers to close on me prematurely as they often do when from micro-climate changes. It was windy out as usual so I used a flash mostly.
