Titan Arum corpse plant flowers again

The world’s largest and stinkiest flower has bloomed again at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. The aptly named ‘corpse flower’ occurs naturally in Indonesia and uses its foul scent to attract carrion-feeding insects as pollinators. On average, it only blooms once every 4-5 years.
