The Amorphophallus Titanum is one of the world's largest flowers and a "botanical superstar." It only survives for 72 hours once it's bloomed, and one just has at the National Botanic Garden of Belgium, attracting thousands of visitors. The name of the phallic-like flower literally means "the giant strangely shaped penis," and it omits a strong odor that has been described as a mix of rancid meat, old cheese, and rotting fish. So, basically, this giant penis flower smells like smegma? [Reuters]
