When it is in full bloom, the plant produces a strong smell similar to rotting meat in order to attract flies and beetles for pollination.


The plant usually takes between seven to 10 years to bloom, but one flower at the Toronto Zoo opened in September 2018 after only five years.
The plant was named Pablo “Pe-ew” Caso in a contest and was widely visited in-person and watched online. It can take several years for a corpse plant to bloom for a second time.
The current blossoming plant has been named ‘Vincent Van Gross.’


To view the plant, guests can purchase tickets at the Toronto Zoo website.

A summer sport in East Anglia, the lands I am from..

I never jumped a dyke in my youth, but some of these did. Some crazy tradition brought over the North Sea from Holland by dyke builders in centuries past who drained the fenlands.

Apparently it was used and perfected by thieves in Holland to steal from farmers and then escape across the water...


P.S. I think the guy opening the event in the blue suit is Dave 'boy' Green who was a champion boxer around that time IIRC.

WTF . Anyone else following the humiliation of Sally Yates et al's deflection's with their "I was not aware of my superiors actions" defence in the Trump Russia investigations? Its like they are turning in on themselves.
