- Crowds gather in the United States to see a stinking flower in bloom
- Named ‘Dead Plant’, this flower is found in Sumatra, Indonesia.
- People loved to see this flower as all the tickets were sold out.
A large and fragrant flower blooms in the southern California region of the United States, which is visited by thousands of people. Named ‘Dead Plant’, this flower is found in Sumatra, Indonesia. This flower blooms in the Southern California Botanical Garden. The plant, which belongs to the genus Amarophobus, is said to have started flowering on Sunday afternoon.
Tickets for the garden were all sold out by Tuesday evening, as people were eager to see the flower. As of Tuesday evening, about 5,000 people were said to have seen the strange flower. But the disappointment was that the flower withered for only about 48 hours. When this flower was at its peak, it had a very strong scent at the time.
The corpse smelled Flower
This attracted a large number of moths and helped pollinate the flower. San Diego Horticulture Manager John Corner said the flower smelled like corpse and was very thick. It can be cut with a knife. In another similar incident, a Sumatra titan flower bloomed for a while and a crowd gathered to see it. This flower is currently on the verge of extinction and has been viewed by many online.
This rare flower is also known as Amorphophallus titanum and can grow up to 10 feet in height. These flowering plants grow only on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. In Sumatra, forests are constantly being destroyed, due to which the plant is now on the verge of extinction. Efforts are now being made around the world to save them. It was first reported in 1889, in Kiev, outside Sumatra.
