The Blooming Plant

The growers of a rare flower, the giant but malodorous titan arum or "corpse flower," say a large plant that blossomed four years ago, bloomed again yesterday and may be on a record-setting pace for cultivated titan arums.
"It's going to be big," says Mohammad Fayyaz, the director of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Botany Garden and Greenhouses. "Already, it is almost 6-feet tall."

Well, this plant is very much a cool thing... but my favorite part of the site was the video update, where the gentleman confesses to being "spaced out" from the odor of the plant! What a hoot!
