    Gawd this thing smells awful. I spent about 20 minutes in an enclosed area taking pictures of it, and when I left, a bulbo nymphopolitanum smelled like raspberries.

    Dorsal sepals are in the neighborhood of 1.5". Petals are around an inch. Leaves are 9" laterally and 20" long. It's getting to be an unwieldy plant.

    Exactly! It even looks stinky but so freakin' cool!!! The things we do for the forum, huh? Great photos! That thing looks like it would slurp across the floor in the middle of the night and do really bad things to you.

    Thanks friends. Except for Clark; you're just a pretenda-friend.

    Even without smelling it, it looks like something from a bad dream.
