UPDATE: HOLD YOUR NOSE! Another stinky Corpse Flower is getting set to bloom in the Conservatory. Experts predict Aug. 20-23...
Native to the equatorial rain forests of Sumatra, the Amorphophallus titanum, or Titan Arum, can reach more than 6 feet in height when it blooms, opening to a diameter of 3–4 feet. But the plant is perhaps most famous—or infamous—for its exceptionally foul odor. Hence the nickname, Corpse Flower. A Titan Arum in bloom is as rare as it is spectacular. A plant can go for many years without flowering, and when it does the bloom lasts only one or two days. This will be the fifth Amorphophallus titanum to bloom at The Huntington.
