The Amorphophallus titanum - known locally as a "carcass
flower" for the stench its bulbs emit upon opening - blossomed
Thursday at the Cibodas Botanical Garden in Bogor. 

The flower, one of the largest and smelliest in the world, comes
from the rain forests of Sumatra island, and typically grows to
more than 9 feet tall. 

Officials at the garden on the southern outskirts of the capital
Jakarta claimed this particular flower reached a height of 9.5 feet
- a new record as the tallest Amorphophallus titanum.
