You knew I was going to have to do it, didn’t you? This is the NYBG corpse flower cam.
Expected bloom Sunday or Monday, and the Garden, which is not open Mondays, will be open this one. Just sayin’.
I’ve never smelled rotting flesh (thank goodness!) but if it’s anything like this, it’s not so bad. I attended the bloom of one of these at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden a few years back, and what stuck with me was the enormous size and beauty of the plant itself, not the odor.
So don’t fear the flower. Go if you have a chance. It’s a multi-sensory experience.
Wish I could! I echo Michael — don’t fear the flower!
