Corpse Flower in Bloom 08/03/2016 Karma: 2  
The New York Botanical Garden has a corpse flower for the first time since 1939. What is so special about this species? It only blooms once per decade, flowers for only 36 hours, and smells like a corpse when in bloom to attract pollinators. This particular plant they have now has been growing for 10 years. People were lining up to see the two-meter-tall plant.

There are plants that use flies to pollinate and, when they flower, these plants will emit the smell of rotting flesh to attract those flies. These make great house plant gifts, particularly for apartment dwellers......Dissertation help Thanks admin nice post
