Hi everyone,
my new Bellatulum opened just A few days ago, I am not entirely happy with the stem as it seems a bit floppy. When the plan arrived in the pot it must have been moved through the transport and it was ”off centre” I did not want to manipulate it too much being concerned it would have been a bit of a shock to the plant to arrive in a new environment and being re potted straight away. So I left it as it was and when I was ready to straighten it up, the bud appeared and I did not want to manipulate again….

I don't see anything wrong there. This species naturally blooms that way. ;)
I thought its leaning too much. On some photos on the net the inflorescence is a bit more upright. Thanks for your comment. 😀 The supplier assured me of the same, its quite natural for the plant to do this. Its the first time it flowers so next season I will know.
