A giant Amorphophallus titanium plant nicknamed "Mr. Stinky" starts to
bloom with spectators watching at the Fairchild Tropical Garden in
Coral Gables, Florida, May 12, 2003. In addition to being the largest
unbranched inflorescence in the world, in June of 1998 "Mr. Stinky" was
the first Amorphophallus titanium plant to bloom in the United States
since 1939. Originally thought to die after blooming, this Titan is the
first in the United States to put on three spectacular, smelly showings
and has grown to an amazing seven foot and one inch. The titan is known
for it's intensely powerful stench that last for over eight hours.
