@llamadrama need to use my gopro and do a time lapse. They take awhile to fully open however. Maybe a few progress shots in a collage will suit...ill give it a go. A few new buds forming 😎

@Joan323 huge flower yes. I shall be ready to record the next one. The plant can look a bit scraggly if not cut back. Puts all its energy into flowering 😊
