Podcast: Corpse Flower
The titan arum is also known as the corpse flower due to its distinctive – and unpleasant – smell. Brandon Huber, a horticultural graduate student, received a tiny one pound corm, or bulb, from a titan arum back in 2007. Huber nicknamed his plant Remus Lupin in honor of its Wolfpack home. Lupin first bloomed in 2016 and is on schedule to bloom again July 31, 2019. Today we’ll talk with Huber about all things corpse flower.
