I hear this flower reeks! Regardless, it is a rather interesting species. You tube has '15 of the most interesting (or weird) plants' and the Corpse flower comes in at #3! Its worth a watch! Thanks for the link gracehong, my daughter and I thought it to be very unusual....but, "really awesome!!" (she said.)

One of these bloomed in the Edinburgh Botanic Garden last year and made it in to the news because the smell is so awful. Obviously people flocked to it just to see how smelly it actually was 😂

@janelleabella @suzyw Omg yes!! Apparently one year it was so bad you could smell it from the parking lot, and some people left without even entering the gardens 😂😂
