corpse flower

on haiku ewe's facebook page, i posted a time lapse video of the 1999 corpse flower blooming. the new one is going to bloom any day! it now stands at 6'7.25". you can learn more on the huntington garden's website.

it blooms only every 5-7 years (this one took 7) and stinks terribly once it opens. the bloom only lasts for 2 days.
