Heading home now. Just want to let anyone that stayed up all night watching the pollination know how much fun we had. There were about 15-20 people that stayed until about 10:30 PM, but there were an intrepid few (maybe 8-10) that stayed until 1:30 in the morning. That included a Miami Herald reporter who had a blast... well a wild Stinkathon. We popped the Champaign at 1 AM to celebrate my carrion beetle act. Mr. Stinky begin closing up almost immediately and odor lessened quickly. I hope that means pollination was successful. I write ya'll a more detailed update tomorrow, or I should say later today when and if I can get myself out of bed.
It has been fun.
