    I'm not touching the other two buds. I was very gentle to try shifting it off the stem. this is not quite like phalaenopsis that I'm used to.

    Paph buds can be quite brittle that way, especially the point where the flower part ends and ovary starts, like as in your case.
    I never touch them. lol

    Phals and others are a bit more flexible although I don't touch those, either. lol

    Maybe the other two buds might open up larger since the first prematurely died off. :)

    That's just not fair. Hope the other two make it.

    I've never done that to a Paph., but I've managed to do it
    with Phrag. flowers and a careless elbow. Just makes me
    want to *^&*%$$#% loudly.

    Something didn't look right with that first one anyway. Premature opening before the ovary elongated completely

    Thanks Rick. So this really wasn't my fault. I barely touch it.

    I also notice yesterday the spike is more erect. It's amazing that it seemed to perk up 45 degree in one day.

    Our weather is not typical. Very warm now with night temperature in the 70s F. Muggy and cloudy. Greenhouse has been very humid.

    I'm not sure if this is it or if it will open further. We have a lot of humidity due to rain this week.
