Odora, a six year old corpse flower in its first bloom. This species is said to have the largest flowers on earth. It's proper name is Amorphophallus titanum, which literally means "misshapen penis". Future botanists might want to consider naming newly discovered plants before the big drunken "Hooray I discovered a plant" celebration, rather than during.
