    I finally managed to get a paph to bud.

    Now it is about to bloom and I’d like to do a time lapse video of the blooming process.

    Anyone knows what time of day ( eg, early morning/ mid day heat/ dusk) it will bloom?

    I think it’s a phaphiopedilum maudiae

    I’m not aware that there is a set time of day for blooms to open.

    I also don't know of any particular time of day for it... Paph buds can take a long time to open - days, even weeks. And once they start to open, they can take several days to become fully open. So patience...
