    thanks guys!!!

    just an update, it didnt even last 1 day, the whole show was over in about 4 hours and interesting though, coz it goes back to its original state. starting with the frizzly lip kinda rolling back in and the petals are enclosing the whole bloom. if i wasnt sure it flowered, i would be waiting and waiting....

    cheers
