Two Chicago Corpse Flowers Are Ready to Bloom and Will Cause Terrible Smell!

UPDATE 5/31: "Java" bloomed Wednesday 5/31. Now we're just waiting for Sumatra to bloom!

----------------------------------

Two corpse flowers known as the "Titan Twins" named Java and Sumatra at the Chicago Botanic Garden are reportedly preparing to bloom!

Supposedly when it happens, the flowers will emit a smell combination of "limburger cheese, garlic, rotting fish and smelly feet."

The blooming of a corpse flowers is rare and only happens every seven to 10 years. So expect many people to show up to watch it happen...even if the stench is horrendous!

Here's a cool video about the flower...and the stink:

 


Here's a time lapse video of one blooming at the Chicago Botanic Garden:
