    Amorphophallus titanum - another Indonesian giant flower

  • Moe Margetts

    The Titan Arum is taller than a man, and stinks of rotting flesh. It gets it's nickname (Corpse/Carrion Flower) from the stench it gives off, which smells like rotten mammal. Think roadkill and you'll have a good idea of what this flower smells like. It looks impressive though! I'd love to see one in real life but the smell.... yuck!

Not only does this plant look bizarre, but it's also known for its unmissable stench. The smell is so bad, that the Rafflesia has earned itself the nickname of “The Corpse Flower.”
