Weedsteeler HQ wire – COLUMBUS, Ohio — Biologists at The Ohio State University said it is like waiting for the birth of a baby.
But this one is a plant that is nine years in the making, 10TV’s Tino Ramos reported on Friday.
The plant, called Titan Arum, has been growing from a seed that was planted nearly a decade ago, but what makes it so rare is that is has never bloomed, until now.
Last year in Cleveland, a Titan Arum bloomed, displaying a purple flower.
And experts said when it blooms you’ll know it.
Nicknamed the “corpse plant,” its blooms have a strong odor, Ramos reported.
“It happens to do that with a really horrible stench of rotting flesh,” Leonard said.
