Enjoy the bouquet! I had one of these bloom in my greenhouse last month. When I entered, my first thought was that I had a dead cat in there! Fortunately, that was not the case, but for a few minutes it seemed certain. Enjoy!

I never forget the experience of painting a Amorphophallus konjac in bloom. It does not stink at all the first day, so once it is open, don't eat, don't sleep and just paint until finished! Then just move it outdoor as the 2nd and 3rd day, the flower starts to smell like dead fish, unbearable, unfortunately, I still have to paint the disection and count the individual little flowers and I left it in my bedroom! Big Mistake! Anyway, I spent the afternoon holding my nose, painting the plant, and spraying perfume in the air! Illustrator
