Love those amorphs, Mkb. Rolling on the floor laughing The top one always makes me think of a big piece of rotting meat sitting in a salad bowl. From what I hear, that's what they smell like, too.

I will admit the foliage is very nice, but I honestly can't stand the idea of the stinky flowers.

Very cool mkb. They look like their happy with whatever you're doing. I've only bloomed a few stinkers outside Elaine and never noticed any smell. The flies sure notice it though. Indoors...that's another story. Whistling

I kept my A. bulbifer outside also and never noticed a smell, even in the greenhouse, tho the greenhouse was open.
