While outside tending to my plants, I smelled something dead. :
The odor was getting stronger as l moved around.
l figured the retched smell was coming from the woods.
Then, as l started toward the potting area, l found the culprit....Amorphophallus paeoniifolius.
I saw the flower bud the other day and
forgot about it.
One look and l had instant recognition that this was the cause of the stink.
I have moved the plant quite aways away until all is fresh air around it.
These flowers can smell like a dead cow in the hot August sun, enough to gag a maggot.
Sure was glad it wasn't a dead critter, l'd have to be scrubbing on them dogs.
