Was the developing bud sprayed at any time?
I would wait to send what the second flower looks like.
Is this the first time this plant has flowered?

Wow, I have never seen this on any Phrag. I like the idea of seeing if it is persistent in subsequent blooms.

First bloom and yes, spray in bud might be culprit!

My 'Millbrook' has always sequentially bloomed, but it is extremely slow to develop successive buds. Don't cut the stalk off when the bloom drops just because it isn't showing a bud yet...it reminds me of Phal violacea...be patient.

Oh great to know! I was seriously going to cut it as it is not so pleasant to look at. Thanks for that information! I hope it does develop a a new bud!
