The rare flower of the ‘corpse flower’ with the smell of decomposed flesh attracts crowds in Warsaw; watch | The world

At the University of Botanical Gardens, a crowd waited for hours to see the giant Titan radius, also known as the dead flower, a giant, stinking, rare and quick-blooming flower. Warsaw, Ann Poland, Sunday and Monday (14).

The flower, which emits an odor similar to rotting flesh to attract pollinating insects that are fleshy, had already begun to decay on Monday.

Those who wanted to avoid the lines – and the stench – were able to see the whole process live in a video made available by the University of Warsaw. Those who choose to visit the Botanical Garden in person can quickly go through the plant and take a picture.

Also known as Amorphopalus titanum, this plant has some of the largest branchless flowers in the world, reaching a height of three meters. Its flowers are rare and unpredictable, and can take years in between.

This plant grows only in the forests of the rainforests of Sumatra, but there is a risk of extinction due to deforestation. Cultivation in botanical gardens, which are a major attraction for visitors, has helped to preserve them.

Its first known flowering outside of Sumatra was in 1889 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, London, in Que.
