    The Corpse, aka Amorphophallus titanum


    People are waiting for it to happen at the Hortus Botanicus in Leiden (The Netherlands)

    If you click the webcam link on the page I provided the link to, you can see how far the Arum has opened so far.

    We have one of those at the Huntington Library in San Marino that just opened up earlier this week and only lasts for about two days.

    The plant smells like rotting flesh.

    Rafflesia also smells like rotting meat and is from the same region.

    It produces the largest individual flower on earth.

    Seems like that phallic purple plant is meant to be stuck into that reddish anal plant. icon_redface.gif

    Ha ha... Actually, Amorphophallus in ancient Greek means "mishapen penis" so your post might be a bit redundant.

    Thanks for the great pictures. They really are uniquely beautiful.
