    So how long will the flower last in your condition, Chris?

    Tom, the last two blooms have closed at the end of their second day of being open.

    That is better than just one day. Thanks.

    The flower of my Dip. aff. chrystropis lasted for whopping five days, which I totally didn't expect that. However, the flower of my other Dip. sp only lasted for about 8 hours.

    Thanks Tom, the flowers on my Dip. tentaculatum lasted less than 24 hours the one time it bloomed.
