The rotting flesh-smelling Titan arum, Ganteng (Amorphophallus titanum), better known as the Corpse Flower – has begun flowering at Adelaide Botanic Garden’s Bicentennial Conservatory!
If you missed it when one bloomed at Mt Lofty Botanic Garden here’s your chance to see it in the city, but you only have around 48 hours to see it.
The Conservatory’s opening hours will be extended to midnight tonight (Tuesday 3 January, last entry at 11:30pm sharp) to allow the public the best chance to experience it when it smells the strongest. Opening hours will also be extended tomorrow (Wednesday 4 January, 7am to 6:30pm) when the flower will still look spectacular, before it collapses in the following days.
Be aware of line-ups to see the flower (and BYO a peg for your nose).
