    It's blooming awful! Rare corpse flower expected to thrill Binghamton University greenhouse goers

    It's going to cause a stink at Binghamton University's E.W. Heier Teaching Greenhouse but the staff can hardly wait. One of their largest charges -- the Amorphophallus titanum a.k.a. corpse flower or titan arum -- is getting ready to bloom and expected to show off its strikingly good looks on or around Tuesday, September 14.

    Believed to be one of the world's largest flowering plants, the bloom is expected to last only a day. But while the flower is stunning, it's the smell that really knocks people off their feet. Reminiscent of the odor of decomposing flesh, the aroma is expected to permeate the area in and around the University's greenhouse.

    The E.W. Heier Teaching Greenhouse will offer extended hours for visitors eager to get a whiff of Metis. The facility will be open from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 11-12, and when near or at full-bloom stage, the greenhouse will also offer evening hours.
