[aroid-l] Amorphophallus titanum bloom

Hello aroiders, 

The Amo. titanum bloom at the University of Connecticut is in the process of opening right now.  If you're close enough to visit, we plan on letting people in to see it 24 hours a day, for as long as it lasts (until Thurs. morning?).  The spathe is now funnel-shaped, not yet pealed back all the way, but the smell is pretty appalling.  "Badly maintained outhouse" is the closest I've been able to come up with.

Check it out on the web at:
