WORLD'S LARGEST FLOWER - ARUM TITAN

(Amorphophallus titanium)

This Aroid is found in Sumatra, Indonesia and its inflorescence can grow up to 3m in length!

The inflorescence is set to fully flower any day now; exposing its burgundy purple flowers and releasing it "rotting flesh" stench.
Currently it looks like a super long cabbage. This plant was planted in 2006 using corm/yam obtained from Huntington Gardens, California

Latest: flower opened on 5 Dec and smelt terribly!
