(August 18, 9 p.m. and 9 hours later on August 19, sketch by Ikumi Kayama)
Finally last night Stinky's wrapper (spathe) started to release its grip around the spandix and early this morning the deep burgundy red color was revealed. Stinky also made clear that nomen est omen, its odor is as monumental as the plant itself.
Ikumi Kayama sketched the status last night at 9 p.m. and again this morning at 6 a.m.
(Our two Amorphophallus titanum plants at two different stages, behind the blooming plant is the tree-like plant which is actually one single leaf).
Ikumi also has a 2-hour illustration demonstration in our Science Pyramid this morning - perfect timing with the simultaneous excitement in our Amorphophallus titanum-world.
