It's one of the most rare, most incredible flowers in all of God's creation - Amorphophallus titanum - also known as Titan Arum, can reach heights of as much as 10 feet!

It only blooms once a year for just about 36 hours....and then it goes into hibernation.

While it hibernates, the leaves can grow to 20 feet tall and 16 feet wide!!

The common name for this flower is the Carrion Flower, because the flower actually smells like rotting meat.

Mmmmmmm.

Botanical gardens all over the world want one of these - and Chicago Botanical Garden has TWINS! They actually have several, but the big twins are usually bloom together...and they've started their bloom!!

So, how quickly can you get to Chicago?

No?

No worries. You can watch them bloom with the live stream > > > HERE < < <

Thankfully, it's only visual...you can't smell them.
