Corpse Flower scientifically, the plant is called Amorphophallus titanum and is also known as a corpse flower, because of the characteristic smell of decomposing flesh released during flowering to attract flies and other pollinating insects.
Amorphophallus titanicus has a unique inflorescence-an ear and tubers of large sizes. The plant is characterized by the presence of an erect stem, one leaf, the size of which can reach 3 meters. For the first time after planting, the flower blooms in 10 years. And the aboveground green part of the plant appears as the flower withers. After that, berries of bright colors are formed at the base of the cob.
Flowering occurs irregularly. Sometimes it takes 6 years to form an inflorescence, and sometimes it is possible to observe almost every year how one of the unique plants of the planet develops.
