Amorphophallus titanum Video


MMMMM. The smell of rotting meat- yummy! What better to attract hordes of carrion eating beetles and flesh flies! If you haven't already seen this, check out the titan arum flower in full video splendor . It generally only grows in Indonesia, but Brooklynites have recently been privy to it's full pungent glory.

PS- So sorry if someone else has posted this vid- I don't remember where this came from!

Sounds like a suspicious cover up for more morbid activities! Keep your eyes on that one...very dubious indeed.
