    Wow! I would say that's the mensuration of a Top model! Thanks for providing so much information. The dimensions really give an impression of the majesty of this flower. I've always been fascinated by them, but I've never seen one in real. Thanks again for sharing

    Sincerly, I never really pay attention to this, but I am sure it's much more than 5 days.
    I'll be careful and note to tell you next time.
    Flowers open consecutively in time on the same scape over several months.
    When a flower fades, it takes about two weeks for the next to open.
