    This plant smells worse than almost anything else I've ever smelled. It's absolutely terrible. :cool: Flowers are over 4" tall, and there are 9 on the spike.

    That lip is a dead giveaway that it'll reek. But how can you not love it?

    Your pictures are amazing.

    Something that looks that evil deserves to have an equally evil odor.

    So wild and inspiring - a special plant, to be sure. I'm glad you grow it, Jon.
