Update – The giant flower of the Titan Arum is opening as I type ……

TITAN OPENS

The long wait for the massive Corpse flower, Amorphophallus titanum, to open in the glasshouse at the Botanics, Cambridge is over. The gardens are open late (until 10pm) tonight and tomorrow night to let people see and smell the bloom at its stinkiest.

Meanwhile, the webcam live-feed they set up is still working, so you can view it remotely and avoid the travelling, queues and smell.

Take a deep breath ……

Enjoy!
