The plant, also called titan arum, but popularly known as the corpse flower, blooms only a few times in its 40-year life span, and the bloom lasts for two and a half days at the most.

Porsche driver feels life's a drag:Did you spot the connection?
The 33-year-old Worthing man’s solicitor said his client was driving down a country road on his way home from London.
He added: “The dog had got loose that afternoon while it was being taken for a walk and was in the middle of the road.
“It was wearing a leash which extended several metres in length.
“While he was driving past the leash became entangled in the exhaust system of the vehicle, dragging the dog behind him.
“The driver was completely unaware of what had happened.
"He stopped to check his car several times because he heard a sound and thought there might be something wrong with his brakes.
"However he did not see the animal behind him.
“He went to the car park near Devil’s Dyke because he wanted to use the toilet at a nearby pub.
"He turned round in the car park and drove on.
“Eventually the driver stopped at the lay-by by Southwick Tunnel because people had been flashing and hooting at him.
“He untied the animal, but did not even realise it was a dog. He was so shocked by it he drove away.
“My client is a dog lover and is completely devastated by what has happened.”
Yeah, that's right. They all stink to high heaven...
