My Phrag. ‘Betheva’ flower won’t open fully. It’s almost there, but the petals are still stuck together below the flower (see photo). It’s been like this for almost two weeks. The petals are getting longer, but not separating...

Does it need a little help? Should I peel/pry the flower open? Or just give it time?

Thanks!

Noah

Insufficient Water / insufficient humidity / both (select one, as appropriate)

Be gentle, but sure, peel them apart.

It's definitely indoors now. How long has it been indoors? And was it initially outdoors when the flower was forming? I agree - at this stage --- gently intervene to separate things.
