    Amorphophallus titanum blooming at CSUF

    Titan Arum / Corpse Flower / Amorphophallus titanum blooming at Cal State Fullerton Biology Greenhouse.
    The first one is done blooming, but there's a second one that should open any day now. If you're local, come see it!

    Please tell me that that can live in a house when it's not in flower.

    Unless you have a house with at least a 12-14 foot ceiling, no. The leaves are just as huge. There are plenty of relative species that can though (I've got a handful of them).
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I'll have to do some research on the relative species, thanks.

    Easiest one to find is probably A. konjac; gets to around 6 feet. A. dunnii, symonianus, another giant paeoniifolius are relatively common ones, and then there are the plants from other related genera like Typhonium, Pinellia etc.

    I grow it's cousin "Konjac" and man for 2-3 days it smells REALLY bad! I'm kind of used to it now though.
