Adam and Matt talk to recent graduate Shay Freger about Arthur, the Amorphophallus Titanum, aka, the Titan Arum, aka, the Corpse Plant. This plant, a roughly 6-foot behemoth, typically blooms only once every 7 or so years… and guess what! It’s blooming right now!
You can watch a nice, succinct description of the Titan Arum by NPR here.
If you want to dig deeper, Wikipedia has a very good intro to to Titan.
There is an extremely long video of a plant blooming “live” from a while ago here. Fast forward to hours 73-119.
