    Not sure you can tell from the picture, but it didn't open up all the way. Is that "normal?"

    If you mean the dorsal sepal is set a little forward, then that is normal. They do that in the wild to keep water out of the pouch. What I've been told to do is when the plant is opening, tilt the pot forward so that the dorsal opens up more.

    But, looking at those pics... they are perfect!

    cheers
