It's here!

Yes folks...
our corpse flower finally bloomed!
Yes I know it's not like the big ones, but it sure seems like rotting flesh, and the flies...

Holy cow, Cat. You, personnally, have a corpse flower????? I'm gobsmacked (as the Brits say). How long did the bloom last? I understand they have a very short bloom time, yes?

The blooms last 24 hours or so.

I've never heard it called a corpse flower...don't you just love 'em though? It looks like you folded the petals back and tucked them under!
