You may want to put this in the blog or on twitter. In the MSU butterfly garden they just moved the flower titan arum because it is about to bloom. It is considered the largest flower in the world and stands about 5-6 feet tall. It smells like rotten meat but it only stays open for a day or 2 but even closed it is an impressive flower.
The plant is fairly rare although there have been a few other blooms by other plants in the midwest in the last few years. Here are a couple of pics.

Dan, I found a little YouTube video of another titan arum or Amorphophallus titanum and I did check the web cam. The flower has already started to bloom! I took the picture below over the web.
