Amorphophallus titanum (titan arum)

Anybody want to paint this one lifesize?

News from Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh:
For the past few weeks, we have watched our Amorphophallus titanum, the world’s biggest and smelliest flower, grow bigger by the day. Nicknamed ‘New Reekie’, it now measures well over seven feet (230cm) and is getting ready to come into full bloom - a first for the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and for Scotland.
Our Amorphophallus titanum is so important it has its own page on our main website. Here you will find some of the back stories and further reading on the plant we are calling “New Reekie”.
