Hey guys! My first post here. I have some Brassavola nodosa buds developing on my plant, which is the first orchid I've ever bought, and it's been 4 days in which I don't think there was any significant development. Is this normal? And if it is, how long is it till the buds fully open? I'm pretty impatient now 😅 thanks!

Orchids teach patience.
I thought they taught impatience :D

if you stick the pot behind something else, with the buds sticking between other foliage, they will open right up ;) (and when you pull the pot back out the flowers will strip right off)

Finally!
And about the fragrance, when it begins to emit the fragrance as darkness falls, it emits a very unique, amazing perfume of spices, something like clove fragrance. Later on, as it becomes late, the fragrance becomes stronger but is indeed a mix of a floral scent and burnt plastic. Very interesting! And the flowers are amazing.

Yeah! It's so weird and intriguing! I've noticed like 5 different smells in one day, it changes so much! During the day it has a very faint fragrance of petunias.
