Plant with rotting flesh smell blooms in California

Plant with rotting flesh smell blooms in California
A Southern California nature center has a flower that smells deathly. Amorphophallus titanum, better known as the "corpse flower," emits a decaying flesh smell during its once-a-decade bloom.

Staff members at the Fullerton Arboretum's Nature Center noticed their flower started blooming Monday morning. The process lasts 24 to 48 hours and can stretch the plants to 10 feet.

The center plans to keep its flower on display until Tuesday.

The plant is native to an island in western Indonesia, according to AP.
