OK. This is the time that many horticulturists anticipate when growing the Corpse Flower …….there is little visible change and the bud is looking so ready to open at anytime. The only question that is asked now is “When will it bloom???” Well, we do not have a good answer for that inquiry at this moment!! Our guess is that it will bloom this week and possibly earlier than later in the week. It has reached the 6’1″ height mark and 2 of the 3 leaf looking structures at the base have dried up and fallen down. So we know we are progressing, but at slower rate than many of us can easily handle!!! We are all waiting as anxiously as everyone else to see what this plant will look like when the bud opens. Stay tuned!
