UCSB’s own Corpse Flower ready for her close-up

IMG_8339Chanel is nearly out!  Chanel is a Titan Arum, better known as the Corpse Flower due to the rotting meat stench which attracts pollinating insects.    These plants originate in Sumatra, Indonesia, and can take up to 10 years to bloom.  You can see her progress on this page where the photo is refreshed every five minutes.  Read more about Chanel here or visit the Facebook page here.
