Deflated Corpse Flower at Foster Botanical Garden

Well, I didn't get to see the Corpse Flower in all its grandeur, but, even in this slightly deflated state, it's still pretty impressive; and I can't say that I'm all that sad about the smell having faded. Really, I wanted to see it more than smell it. So, all in all, this worked out OK for me!

Foster Botanical Garden did a nice job of documenting the progression of the Corpse Flower's opening. Click on the link and scroll down to see more photos.

What did it smell like at this stage? Did it still make you gag? :)

No, I couldn't even smell it. I guess the smell pretty much fades with the flower. So, good timing as far as I'm concerned-I was much more excited about seeing it than smelling it!
