The A-titanum (ty-TAN-um) flower is nicknamed the corpse plant, so you can imagine what it smells like. They bloom very rarely, but when they do, they create a dreadful odor. Nonetheless, it's always a big draw when they do, and the Tech greenhouse is open for visitors through Friday from eight until four.
