Amorphophallus Titanum In Bloom Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

With the excitement over the impending bloom of Amorphophallus Titanum at the Muttart Conservatory here in Edmonton, I was seeking time lapse video of this incredible bloom on YouTube.  I found the following video of the event at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens which also provides some interesting information about the rarity of the event and the plant itself.  This and the video released by Kew Gardens are two of the best I found.  I hope you enjoy it.

We've actually had one or two of those flower at the Montreal Botanical Gardens in the pas few years, they're fascinating flowers!

Wonderful Karine! Did you go to see it in person? I'll have to check to see if they posted any footage or photos. The flower opened today at the Muttart Conservatory but I'm not sure if I'll make it there today. If I do, I'll be sure to post photos!!
