Wretched-Ass Plant

Well it looks like the nasty smelling Amorphophallus titanum plant is in bloom again at the U.S. Botanic Garden in D.C. I saw and smelled it a couple of years ago with my friend JM. It was N-A-S-T-Y and impressive all at the same time. Wonder why "phallus" is in it's name....Hmmmmm...???

A quote from the CNN.com article: "Now that it's in bloom, the plant has also started emitting a smell that's drawn comparisons to garbage, spoiled meat, and rotting fish."

That is one big ole 12 foot high, stank, RANK MESS.
