U of M Corpse Flower is About to Bloom; Stinking More Than Packers

Starting Thursday, there's an opportunity for Minnesotans to sample a noxious, fetid stench without having to travel all the way to Lambeau Field.

That's because Amorphophallus titanum, otherwise known as the "Corpse Flower," is set to bloom again at the University of Minnesota's College of Biological Sciences Conservatory.

The conservatory is open for public viewing (and smelling) between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. starting Thursday, and ending whenever the flower closes.

The flower, named Chauncy, is native to Sumatra's equatorial rainforests and the species is known to release a scent similar to rotting meat.
