The largest Titan Arum flower in the World is currently blooming in West London’s Kew Gardens. The rare flower has hit 2.11 m and continues to grow.
The Titan Arum flower orginates from Sumatra and is known as the “corpse flower” for a very good reason – it smells like a mixture of rotting flesh, mouldy cheese and dirty diapers.
Fortunately for West London, the flower will only retain its smell for 2 days.
