titanic penis flower (don’t be fooled by the name)

Today is our moving day where I will spend all day moving all our furniture so I don’t have time to make a fun flower, so I did some research and found this rare flower for everyone to look at and read about.

The titan arum (a.k.a titanic penis) is not the world’s biggest flower, but it does have the world’s biggest inflorescence. Like the rafflesia, it also grows in Sumatra and also is called the corpse flower after its notoriously rotten stench.
