If you've never seen (smelled) one of these you missed a good show. We didn't go this time since we've already seen these plants in bloom twice; once here and once at Fairchild Tropical Gardens.

No, I missed it but I know it was highly anticipated.

I went to see it!!!
It took about an hour of waiting in the rain and then inside the USBG.
It was a very large flower, but not nearly as odiferous as I has expected. Actually the odor was very complex with many overlayered scents, if that makes sense (ha ha).
It was magnifiscent!
