How small do you think one of these could be made with a 0.4mm extruder?

I am dying to do this thing in my bronze filament! This is incredible, thanks for sharing!

How hard would it be to adjust it do the inner petals were offset 45 degree from the outer?

Funky design dude! I like how it has quite an old school feel to it, puts me in mind of something out of the Victorian period... sort of :) It would no doubt look awesome in a bronze.
I think it would work even better as a piece of kinetic art if you could get the same opening and closing of the petals from a continues rotation of the central gear. that would also make it easier to power with a motor or the the wind or whatever.

any way thanks for shearing and keep up the good work.

Great looking project. Any video or animation of it moving?

In the video, it seems that the outer petals open but not the inner. Is that correct?

The inner petals open as well.

WOW - 28 parts... very nice and intricate design. Thanks for sharing.
