A rare viewing of a flowering Titan Arum (Amorphophallus titanum), the largest unbranched flower in the world! This particular plant which was the very last flower taken from the wilds of Sumatra, Metis, flowered in 2010, and we were all surprised when it decided to flower again, only a few years later! Often these flowers only bloom once a decade, or even longer, and only truly flower for a single day!

The flower smells strongly of decomposing flesh, which serves to attract flies which pollinate the flower!

Special thanks to Laurie Bell, who has managed the greenhouse so wonderfully!
