    At night, there are a lot of dark things zipping around the front right corner of the raised bed. Insects? Mice?

    A question regarding the plants in the background: Some of them seem to go limp at night and the the leaves fan back out around sunrise. I know a fair bit about what's going on inside the leaf cells around sunrise, but I've never heard anything about leaves that droop at night. What's going on with that?

    "Amorphophallus Titanum"- I would have thought that a botanical gardens outfit would know how to correctly present a species name. The specific name should be in lower case, 'titanum'. So the species name is Amorphophallus titanium, not Amorphophallus Titanum. It should be in italics too, but I don't know how to do that here. It's in your description if you are wondering where it appears…

    Why did it fall over after it's bloom? Does it reach the end of its lifecycle after? 😯

    I'm just curious what the umbrella was for ? Also, I like the large round globe light in the background. It looks like a full moon rising. That's a nice touch in the night time video of this plant blooming.

    It looks so…alien. What country did it originate from? What's the history and lore regarding this plant?

    Love that it has its own beach umbrella. They should have put a pair of sunglasses on it and a dab of zinc oxide where the nose would be.

    The beginning was more of a "JOURNEY OF THE GARDEN HOSE" to me. Right hand side, all the positions it's found itself in.

    that feeling that's what your bottom does when you fart… so the flower farts every 10 years.

    Hi there. I work for AccuWeather and we're writing a story about the corpse flower blooming. May we use this video on our digital and TV platforms with credit to you, of course?
