Stinky Flowers?

What is a titan arum?

The Corpse flower is one of the world’s rarest flowers. It grows in Indonesia and its stalk can grow up to 15 feet tall and its bloom can be more than three feet wide! Even with this amazing size, the corpse flower is best known for its foul odor. Its bloom smells like a rotten dead body. In fact, it even looks rotten. All this nastiness makes it irresistible to insects, which the plant requires for pollination so it can reproduce and make more big stinky flowers.
 
The outside of the corpse flower is actually kind of pretty, even though it smells like rotten flesh. It defies the common characteristics of most flowers, making it a hypocrite of the plant world. It looks good on the outside but it’s rotten to the core. It’s similar to the sinful nature of mankind expressed in Matthew 23:27. So when you think about the corpse flower, be reminded to “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16
