    Aroids

    Gathering a bunch of these now...and I'll start the thread with one that very few people have ever heard of, the Pig's Butt Arum

    Just leaves right now, but it's big enough that it could bloom this year...

    Sauromatum really is not that powerful (at least not this one). I can keep it in my bedroom while in bloom and it still doesn't even compete with one of my snakes having a crap fest.
    The Amorphophallus konjac that bloomed last year on the other hand...I left it out on the deck in the back yard and still got complaints from the family. I can only imagine what will happen if/when the other species I have like henryi, bulbifer, paeoniifolius etc. start blooming, as they're usually far more potent.

    LMAO

    When the Nep girls bloom they STANK so I toss them outside when I can. Easy in San Diego most of the year, but here growing them inside now it's an eyewatering stench for which I almost grabbed the mask a few times At least the Sarras want to be outside here so them and their pee smell can hang out by the shed!

    Nepenthes are in the greenhouse here, only I deal with that smell (though I only ever seem to have a couple plants in bloom at a time...), but it's never been particularly bad to me. Sarracenia, they bloom while still downstairs here because yay, right now is usually approaching the end of frost season...but the smell is usually concentrated in mid-mornings when people are usually not here, and definitely not downstairs.
