Giant stinky Corpse Flower, blossoming
“The Huntington, a wonderful destination here in Los Angeles, has posted GIFs of the rare Corpse Flower blossoming. If you’re in Southern California, you gotta see it in person. The plant’s latin name, Amorphophallus titanum comes from Ancient Greek amorphos, “without form, misshapen” + phallos, “phallus”, and titan, “giant.”

He’s amazed by it
He needs to join the queue of amazed peeps.
I forgive your excess of product. You can stay.
