Soon after blooming, the Amorphophallus titanum will start to smell like ROTTEN FLESH. That’s where it gets its nickname, “corpse flower”!!! At the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers, their massive 5’8″ corpse flower, which they’ve named “Terra the Titan,” is is in bloom. You can catch a glimpse of it on their livestream RIGHT NOW. Just be thankful you can’t SMELL IT!!!
