A super-rare corpse flower — one of only 140 in the world, according to an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel — is about to bloom at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The giant plant only blossoms once every six years, and when it does, according to the story, it produces “a stench that travels for miles.”
Attractions that smell bad are rare, and they’re sometimes built around phenomena that are fleeting, like the blooming corpse flower, which remains in its stinky state for a mere six hours. A Halloween blossoming of this plant seems possible and entirely appropriate. Whenever it occurs, however, the Milwaukee Public Museum plans to extend its hours to accommodate visitors, and as an opportunity to keep its doors open.
