"Jesse," the second Titan Arum to bloom at The Ohio State University, was named for famous OSU alumni Jesse Owens and opened May 25, 2012. Jesse was sown from seed in November, 2001. Jesse's sibling, Woody, bloomed April 23, 2011. Some of Woody's pollen was used to pollinate Jesse at approx 1:30 a.m. on May 26, 2012. Other pollen was donated by "Clive," a Titan Arum that bloomed a few weeks earlier in Niagra Falls, Ontario.

Titan Arums are also known as Corpse Flowers, and have the scientific name Amorphophallus titanum. They are native to Sumatra and are becoming very rare in the wild due to human encroachment and deforestation.

This video includes time lapse sequences from two views, documenting the two weeks of growth prior to and through flowering. Video by Andi and Steve Wolfe ©2012. Music "Pace Yourself" licensed through AudioMicro.
