Banished to the far reaches of the universe!

The universe of the Walter Knoll Florist Garden Center at the corner of Californa and LaSalle that is!  Well it of course happened over the weekend – Mr Stinky opened up and smelled so rotten he had to be moved to the far back corner of our greenhouse!  I heard there was a group of 8 boy scouts here on a field trip on Saturday that all got to be grossed out by the Mr Stinky aroma!  Here is Mr Stinky in all his bloominess!

I have one about to bloom, the plants are very curious things. This will be my first inflorescence. Last april 2010 my sauromatum venosum bloomed, and it stinks pretty bad I hear this one is worse.

Hey, i had a flower calling "Rafflesia Arnoldi", that only can found in Indonesia, when it blooms it stinks like carcass, local people named it "Bunga bangkai".
