Doesn’t the leaves in second photo look like panther’s skin?
And the first one a coconut ?
Guess and let me know why it is called what it is called !!
This is better the better video
I live near the world famous US botanical Garden (never mind they have ‘botanic’ in their name, my quibble)
I was listening to WETA classical radio yesterday evening and the elegant Nicole Lacroix had mentioned about this most fascinating ( well I felt that way after looking at it today ) flower
It is about to bloom – it smells like a corpse and
it is yuge! The wonderful Ricardo from Columbia who has been volunteering for our great institution is explains it
It is all they way from Indonesia !!
And the only time a public institution there are three flowers on display for the first time in history of USA !
