8/21/18 - Here is a picture of the three Corpse Flowers at the Huntington Library, also known as the Titan Triplets. From left to right, their names are Stank, Stink, and Stunk. Stink, the flower in the middle, bloomed on August 17, 2018 and has been cut down in order to pollinate Stank and Stunk. These two Corpse Flowers in bloom are so huge and beautiful! They have more of a dead rat smell, and the odor was faint. 🌺📷🌺 #huntingtonlibrary #atTheH #sanmarino #StinkyatTheH #TitanTriplets #CorpseFlower #CorpseFlowers #Stank #Stink #Stunk #rareflowers #flowerstalking #raw_flowers #flowersofinstagram #tropicalflowers #losangelesgrammers #conquer_la #discoverla #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #theonlycalifornia #visitcalifornia #bestpicsaround #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor28300mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
8/21/18 - The highlight of my night tonight was visiting and photographing the two Corpse Flowers, Stank and Stunk, at the Huntington Library! Here is a picture of me between Stank and Stunk. These two flowers are so huge and beautiful! They had more of a dead rat smell, and the odor was faint. More pictures to follow! 🌺👩🌺📷 #huntingtonlibrary #atTheH #sanmarino #StinkyatTheH #TitanTriplets #CorpseFlower #CorpseFlowers #Stank #Stunk #flowers #rareflowers #flowerstalking #raw_flowers #flowersofinstagram #tropicalflowers #losangelesgrammers #conquer_la #discoverla #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #theonlycalifornia #visitcalifornia #bestpicsaround #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor28300mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
Titan Arum Tuesday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Titan Arum aka Amorphophallus titanum aka Corpse Flower. I didn’t think I would manage to catch one as they only bloom for 24-48 hours and residency hours can make catching a bloom difficult. These two bloomed tonight, though, and with the @thehuntingtonlibrary extended hours until 9pm and finishing up at work today on the earlier side around 7:30pm, I could juuuuuust barely make it out there in time if I left straight from work... so of course I did just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Info from the Huntington Library and Gardens website: Native to the equatorial rain forests of Sumatra, the Amorphophallus titanum, or Titan Arum, can reach more than 6 feet in height when it blooms, opening to a diameter of 3–4 feet. But the plant is perhaps most famous—or infamous—for its exceptionally foul odor, giving it the nickname, Corpse Flower. In its natural environment, the Corpse Flower is pollinated by sweat bees. It attracts those insects by sending off a foul odor like rotting meat that can travel long distances in the Corpse Flower’s native tropical forests, ensuring insects can pick up the scent in time to pollinate the flowers during their short bloom time. #huntingtonlibrary #flowers #corpseflower #titanarum #portraitmode #amorphophallustitanum #botany #botanicalgardens
Capturing the stinky plants one last time until next summer? The Huntington has over 40 of the original Stinky’s offspring from 1999. They take about 15 years to mature and produce this plant. . . . . . . . #whatagirleats #amorphophallus #amorphophallustitanum #corpseflower #exoticplant #exoticflowers #botanticgarden #huntingtongarden #explorecalifornia #travelgirls #seetheworld #instagram #pasadena #sanmarino #visitpasadena #visitcalifornia #museum #plants #flowergram #instaflower #plantstagram
Look what's blooming! After the first one didn't successfully finish blooming... 3 mor sent up buds and the last 2 started blooming this evening. The bloom will only last 24-48 hours before withering. Surprisingly it didn't smell as badly as advertised, more like warm decaying plant matter (Like in a jungle or swamp) @thehuntingtonlibrary #titantriplets #corpseflower #titanarum #stinkstankstunk
It smells so bad I’m seeing double... and has given me some ideas... stay tuned... . . . #corpseflower #ihavereturned #thirdtimesthecharm
Visited the triplets again along with their distinctive aroma. 🤢😷🌷 #corpseflower #huntingtonlibrary #membersonly
They’re back! Three smaller Corpse flowers on display #attheH after their big brother failed to bloom earlier this summer. 🥀 #corpseflower #stinkyattheh
“Stank, Stink, Stunk” - Last time we went to go see the corpse flower bloom it never happened (they dissected the flower to see why to never bloomed). So the Huntington brought in 3 corpse flowers and one bloomed last week (didn’t have time to go) but then the other two started blooming tonight, and they did a special viewing for members 👏🙌 🌺☠️ (📷: @carissa_gustafson ) #corpseflower #huntingtonlibrary #stankstinkstunk
Everyone checking out the #corpseflower at the #huntingtonlibrary #huntingtongardens
Got to witness the rare bloom of a #corpseflower !!!! @thehuntingtonlibrary thank you for hosting such a spectacular event!!
Magnífica, simplemente. // Huele a pañal sucio pero definitivamente es una flor única.

Double trouble, and double stink. Two, yes TWO, of these, um, beauties (🤷🏻‍♀️) are blooming right now! You can see last week’s bloom in the front left. #corpseflower #stinkyattheh #tropicalplant #eew #attheh
YOU GUYS. The last two #TitanTriplets just started blooming TOGETHER. 😱😱 #HuntingtonMembers (all levels) can see Stank & Stunk tonight from 6-9pm; and we’ll be open regular public hours tomorrow, 10am-to 5pm. Check our story for more bloom updates!! 🌺😍🌺#StinkyAtTheH #CorpseFlower
Went here a few days ago for the corpse flower bloom. Forgot to post. #titanarum #titanarumbloom @nicholasconservatory #natureisbeautiful #corpseflower

“You’re doing great sweety” Really Jare?? 😂😩😂 #lilStinker #CorpseFlower
(8/17) the last one died, but this little guy decided to unexpectedly bloom! I was fortunate enough to catch it on Friday's trip to @thehuntingtonlibrary 🌸 #corpseflower #thehuntingtonlibrary #amorphophallustitanum #bloom
Dracunculus vulgaris Growing/naturalized in the wilds of the SF peninsula. Corpse flower from Greece. I may have caught it on an off day, but having grown Stapeliads which can smell from feet away, even little flowers, I was a little surprised this 1.5ft+ long flower didn't smell stronger. One of many Aroids naturalized along the CA coast. . . . . . . #dracunculus #vulgaris #beach #sanfrancisco #bayarea #araceae #aroid #arum #succulents #succulent #plant #plants #corpseflower #greece #多肉植物 #塊根植物 #bulb #bulbs #california
Et si avant de trouver l'éveil on travaillait le réveil ? Il n'y a pas 1 matin en ce moment où mon corps ne réclame pas le tapis. Alors je le déroule sans trop savoir où il va me mener...(Sous le regard attentif de mes 2 fils 🧒🐱). . ✨. Et toi, tu l'écoute ce corps qui te parle au réveil ? N'attends pas trop longtemps pour lui donner ce dont il a besoin. Ne repousse pas à demain ce qui doit être fait aujourd'hui !

"x Staparesia meintjesii", riiight. Buying Stapeliad cuts off eBay is always risky, but it would appear that at least I have a name now. Huernia 'Elvis', came from one of the Carolinas. I can't say it sates my need for a hybrid between a Tavaresia and a Stapelia gigantea, though... Huge flowers for a Huernia, on the other hand. . . . . . #huernia #elvis #tavaresia #stapelia #hybrid #apocynaceae #asclepiadaceae #succulents #succulent #carrionflower #corpseflower #plant #plants #flower #flowers #多肉植物
The giant #CorpseFlower (#Amorphophallus titanum) has the largest unbranched inflorescence. One of my favourite facts is that the central part called the #spadix partly functions to raise the heat of the flower so that it can volatilise a vile rotting scent through the jungle and #mimic more closely #carrion ’s temperature. In fact the tip is as warm as the human body. #huntingtongardens has managed to #selfpollinate their blooms before; a feat that normally would not take place because the female flowers are receptive to #pollination for less than 24hrs before the the #spathe closes (as in this photo). The male #flowers then produce #pollen to be taken to other blooms by #pollinators (#fleshflies ). The spadix is hollow and has a fibrous network to support its large structure. The plant has the largest #corm weighing sometimes more than 150kg or 339 lb. it alternates between a vegetive stage with a strange single leaf (upper fringes of the photo shows a little from another #arum #plant ) up to 6m or 20ft tall and 5m across. Each year the leaf is replaced and when the plant goes #dormant it will produce a flower. Sometimes it can take up to 10 years for a flower to be produced. The scientific name means #giant misshapen #phallus . The inflorescence May reach more than 3m 10ft in height. #bucketlist #botany #botanical #botanicalbucketlist #titanarum #plantporn #fascinatingplants #gardensofla @sayuritanabe #thehustleisreal
A view inside the #amorphophallustitanum #corpseflower . You can see just how thick the walls are, and every cm is needed to support the weight of this sucker!
Had a wonderful birthday weekend. Went to smell the Corpse Flower @thehuntingtonlibrary Tried the Seafood Tower @crossroadskitchen Went to @xthebandofficial concert. Visited @thegentlebarn and lastly had dinner with family and friends @bluebirdbrew Thanks to my amazing husband 💜 @rmdesigns_ca #birthday #happybirthdaytome #bluebirdbrasserie #shermanoaks #vegan #vegansofig #family #friends #huntingtonlibrary #corpseflower #stinkattheh #crossroads #crossroadskitchen #melrose #x #xtheband #punk #losangeles #gentlebarn #loveanimals
Beat the heat at the Huntington this weekend #latergram #corpseflower #artandscience #gardens #saturday
It’s true. #StinkyDBGReturns to @denverbotanic in the next couple weeks! It’s already up to 39” - likely to reach over 5’ tall; and likely to be even stinkier than last time (think rotting corpses/putrid garbage). Happy Monday! I have to say - I’m pretty lucky to be able to design/illustrate for such random botanical occurrences like Stinky the #corpseflower - just hold on tight to those noses; it’s going to be a smelly ride... #designspotting #illustrator #graphicdesigner #botanicalillustration #scifi #speeddrawing #designsinnature #goodtype #handlettered #handlettering #thisiswhatido #botanicalart #nonprofitdesigner #denverliving #smellyalater
Pretty stoked to see this stinkin’ flower! #corpseflower #stinkyDBGreturns #ihavethebestjobever
#lifecycle of the #corpseflower #leaf (that's the tall on that looks like a tree) #corm (the tiny one) and the #flowers , two getting ready to #bloom and one that already did. #stinkstankstunk #attheH #huntingtongardens
Saw one of the gigantic #corpseflower triplets blooming over the weekend at the @thehuntingtonlibrary in San Marino - smelled like a thousand wet cucumbers!!😃🥒 The other two may bloom this week, as well, beautiful area, the landscaping there is insane
My Mum and I had the honour of seeing a Corpse Flower, or Titan Arum, last weekend! They are one of the world's largest and rarest flowering structures (growing to 10-15 feet tall). When blooming, the Corpse Flower heats up to 98F and emits a scent similar to rotting flesh. They only bloom once every 7-10 years; and once they do, the bloom only lasts about 24 hours before withering away. I've read about the Corpse Flower several times before, and always been intrigued by it. It was such a surreal experience to actually see one in person, to stand next to one of these giant marvels of nature. It was like seeing something straight out of Journey to the Center of the Earth! 👀 These pictures (➡ swipe to see more!) were taken just two days before this particular Corpse Flower went into bloom. Unfortunately, my work schedule didn't allow me to return to the Conservatory for a second viewing; but I'm grateful nonetheless that I got a chance to see this rare beauty. 🍃💚 ▫ ▫ @nicholasconservatory #corpseflower #titanarum #grimacethecorpseflower #nature #wildplants #rarebeauty #naturelover #plantfreak #plantenthusiast #conservatory #botanicalgarden #gardens #morbid
Missed the full bloom but still a sight to seen.... the stench of death is in the air. #corpseflower #huntingtonlibrary #death #plantpeople #plants #corpse #picoftheday #stink #stank #stunk #instagood

@julekiki & I went on an impromptu adventure a couple of days ago to visit this little stinker! 🌷 #corpseflower #huntingtonlibrary
Amorphophallus atroviridis. Gorgeous! A type of corpse flower. Its a monocot, like grass, orchids, lilies, etc, from Thailand. . . . . . #amorphophallus #aroid #araceae #corpseflower #carrion #plant #plants #bulb #bulbs #succulent #succulents
SUNDAY FUNDAY at The Huntington to see the Flower Corpse “Stink” along with “Stank” and “Stunk” 😂 Mother Nature is wondrous and has a sense of humor, too! The Huntington is such a gift, one I have enjoyed since I was just a child, it continues to amaze me and is one of my favorite places. #thehuntingtonlibrary #thehuntingtongardens #corpseflower #stinkinbloom #stinkstankstunk #mothernature #wondrous #plantlife #japanesegarden #chinesegarden #inourownbackyard #sundayfunday #withmybff #livelifehappy #peace
A shady little fellow creeping up my house #spider #shadows #nocturnal #corpseflower
Originaria de Sumatra Indonesia ver abierta "The Corpse Flower" es todo un acontecimiento, ya que florece únicamente aprox. cada 10 años y sólo dura viva 3 días; despide un olor fétido de ahí el origen de su nombre. I had the honor of seeing it closed and the next day open. @conservatoryofflowers #conservatoryofflowers #corpseflower #thecorpseflower #miracle #corpseflowerbloom #corpseflowerbloom2018 #titanarum #weirdplants #amorphophallustitanum #sumathetitan
Mushroom, or Not? Mijinemungshing-Wildcat-Gamitagama Solo Canoe trip Day 4 Surprise, it may look like a mushroom 🍄, but it's not! The Indian Pipe (Monotropa uniflora if you a plant geek), or Ghost Plant, or my favourite name, Corpse Plant, is a 'herbaceous' perennial that has no chlorophyll, the stuff that makes plants green. Yup, that's a wildflower 🌻 you're looking at. Instead of creating energy from sunlight, it's a parasite that steals it from fungus that are friends with tree roots. (It's complicated, trust me. I googled it.) Another very cool reason to portage a canoe in the rain! . #wildflower #really #the_punishment_and_the_payoff #the_portagers_life_for_me #lspp #lakesuperiorprovincialpark #lakesuperior . . . . . #monotropauniflora #indianpipe #corpseflower #wildflowers #petal_perfection #plantsofinstagram #portaging #portage #canoelife #wanderlust #thosewhowander #canoetrip #ontario #yourstodiscover #neverstopexploring #inawe #stayandwander #keepitwild #wildplaces #canonphotography #canonsx50

Went to see the #corpseflower @thehuntingtonlibrary ...so cool
Corpse Flower. The stinking bloom lasted only one day #corpseflower #huntintonlibrary #stink
Corpse plant bud getting bigger! #corpseflower
The flowers are still in bloom 🌸 (I promise I have eyes, the sun was just so bright 😂😭) #vscocam #huntingtonlibrary #corpseflower #summer
Amorphophallus Titanum more commonly known as the beautiful Corpse Plant. ☠️🍃🌸🍃☠️ Native to Sumatra, I grow this beauty in a greenhouse in order to manage her high humidity requirements. 🌿💦 #plants #plantgang #plantlife #corpseflower #corpseplant #amorphophallustitanum #amorphophallus #greenhome #greenthumb #instaplant #plantchicago #gayswithplants #nature #earth #chicago #chicagoplants #plantoftheday #weloveplants
Finally got to see a corpse flower thx to a jaunt to the Denver Botanic Gardens. They’ve named it Stinky. I’ll take their word for it that it lives up to its name. Not sure my nose is up for the bloom. #corpseflower #denverbotanicgardens #stinky
