UW's Giant "Corpse Flower" Has Live Webcam

Another Titan Arum, the giant flower nicknamed "corpse flower" for it's pungent aroma, is set to bloom soon at the UW Botany Garden and Greenhouses - right next door to the UW Law School. As of yesterday it measured an amazing 97 and 1/2 inches.

A live webcam is available and on site viewing is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and until midnight the day the plant blooms.


Thanks for posting this.

That one is huge at 97 inches - the biggest ones (according to Wikipedia) grow to about 120 inches.
