World’s Stinkiest Flower Blooms in Loxahatchee




“What attracts people to this plant? It's the shock value. People love a train wreck. You glance, drive by, recoil, then look again”, said the corpse flower�s owner and caretaker, Robert Saporito, who planted the corpse flower in 2006.



A hole is cut into the corpse flower so that it can be pollinated.



The “corpse flower” (Amorphophallus titanum) at Tropical Bamboo Nursery and Gardens is six-feet tall.



The Amorphophallus titanum flower, indigenous to Sumatra, blooms on July 21, 2014 in Loxahatchee.



Visitors to Tropical Bamboo Nursery and Garden take photos of the blooming corpse flower.



Mateo Santiago, Field Manager at Tropical Bamboo Nursery and Gardens, photographs rain water collecting in the corpse flower as Garden Manager Melanie Benson steadies a ladder. Santiago crinkled his nose up distastefully when he described its odor, which was at its worse Sunday night. “It smelled like a dead rat”.



The corpse flower blooms on Monday.
