Thanks for that mrsD. Some of those are weird indeed. Weird yet amazing.

One of those shown in that article, the so called Corpse Flower - Titan Arum - actually bloomed at the Melbourne Botanic Gardens in Victoria, Australia on the 25th of December last year. It was all over the news at the time.

Here's an article about it from "The Age". There's a time lapse video which shows it opening. It's quite interesting.

Same video here without the extra info.. Sorry it's got an ad.
