Nothing. The flower will probably last about a week or less, dry up, and leave the leaves behind. Like I said, the leaves persist until some time during late summer or early fall. The tuberoids will stay dormant from the time the leaves drop until right about the beginning of May.

Yours is positively Corybas geminigibbus. You can identify it from Corybas pictus from the lanceolate shaped labellum. With Corybas pictus the labellum is rounded.

The other way to tell that it is Corybas geminigibbus is from the callus on the lip. The "gemini" in "geminigibbus" is referring to the twin ridged callus on the lip.
