Lol .. quite frankly I'd be happy that it doesn't smell. I'm waiting for my Amophophallus konjac to bloom and I'm hoping it's not nearly as stinky as people are making it out to be. I got my fill of stinky plants with the Proboscidea plants which was so bad that I had to take them out of the greenhouse.

I'm with you, I just don't see the charm of a plant that smells terrible. If it has a pretty flower that stinks, I'm very happy just seeing a picture of it.

A friend has one of the amorphs that makes flowers near the ground that look like cow pies and smell like the cow died. True, it does put up very nice foliage after the flowers are gone but . . . ewww!

No one says you have to smell it! Rolling my eyes.

I grow several stinky plants, they ate only abrasive if indoors, and it's once every 4-5 years, only for one day, really only a few hours that day...

I'm glad my wife has less stringent standards when it comes to stinkyness...
I'm doing good if I smell good for a few hours a week *Blush*

I grow amorphs for the leaf not the flower... It's interesting but more of a novelty...

That palm like leaf is just too cool!

Konjac in flower...


Thumb of 2013-08-11/Swayback/874e5b
And the leaf! Much cooler! Standing 5'6" with a 4' spread

Here's my Titan "Buford"

He should finish up much larger that the konjac, it's about 4' now

Stapelias... Now those guys have a gross flower, it's pretty and all, smells like road kill, old rotten dead stuff, is covered with hairs and within a few hours of being open is covered in fly eggs, promptly hatching into tiny maggots... Or the dancing rice family... As my dad always called them...

Here have a stiff...

I grow mine because it's really a beautiful plant when not in flower!
