The Corpse Flower at the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver
6

"Uncle Fester" , 6 feet high.

This plant is 6 years old and this is it's first bloom.  It is supposed to smell like rotten meat, but the bottom leaf only opened for about 4 hours in the middle of the night which released the worst smell and by the time I saw it, the smell had dissipated.  There were line-ups up to 4 hours long to see/smell it!
