Stinky plant blooms at Milwaukee Public Museum

I was really intrigued with this story when it came out some time ago and wondered if this plant would bloom or not. Seems it came through and is now fumigating the entire first floor of the museum. Don't plan to eat your lunch there, but by all means, visit and view this exotic wonder that blooms every 7 years....

"Stinky socks.
Rotten meat.
And, of course, used baby diapers.

Many words came to the minds of Milwaukee Public Museum visitors Monday who were astonished, thrilled and, yes, nauseated, by the resurrection of Neilson, the now-famous corpse plant.

When last we visited Neilson on Sunday, it appeared the 7-foot tall stinky plant had collapsed on his side without blooming or giving off any odor at all. You can just imagine what people were saying about Neilson behind his back."
