    are you saying these are the flowers that smell of rotting flesh!?
    I have been surprisingly unimpressed by the smell of the various "carrion/corpse flowers". The ones I've had bloom or smelled at the orchid shop all have more or less resembled the vinegar smell of a new rubber halloween mask.

    Congrats! Mine started to wake up about 2 weeks ago. My 11 1/2 inch diameter/13 lb. tuber bloomed last spring and shrunk to 8" when I dug it up in the fall. She's just waking up now.

    It's one of those weird ones that makes a flower first then it will make it's leaf after the flower dies off

    Actually it's a small one
    They can get up to 6 to 7 feet tall

    But I'm excited about it
    Started with about a nickel size corm {bulb} like 3 years ago
    Wasn't expecting it to bloom for at least another year or two

    I love these. Just got my first small corms this week. BTW, any one ever tell you that you look like a young El Duche from the Mentors ?
