Time Lapse of the Stinkiest Flower in the World

This a time lapse video of Perry T. Titan (Titan Arum A.K.A Corpse Flower) growing in the green house at Gustavus Adolphus College. The smell of this flower is just awful. At one point inside the flower it will heat up to about 98F to better spread the rotting flesh odor as far as possible to attract pollinating insects. This video shows Perry just after it begins to grow from the corm all the way until the spadix collapses 45 days later.
