Forget that fat Royal Baby for a minute, we’ve got Corpse Flower Mania, right here in America. The titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as the corpse flower or stinky plant, is blooming RIGHT NOW at the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory. Once it’s open, it could remain so for up to 48 hours, and then it will collapse. It is GIGANTIC, the largest known unbranched inflorescence in the plant kingdom, its putrid smell is often compared to the stench of rotting flesh. It also generates heat, which allows the stench to travel further. It does not have an annual blooming cycle and requires very special conditions, making botanic gardens well suited to support this super-exotic plant. It’s native to the tropical rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia, and was first discovered in 1878. The US Botanic Garden last displayed a blooming titan arum six years ago. It’s an Instagramathon, kids!
