It hasn't bloomed yet, I just checked... they claim it will bloom any second! I've never smelled one of these, but I have smelled death and don't care much for that particular fragrance. The butterflies seem to like "Rosie" a lot, I've seen quite a few fluttering around her. Enjoy:

It’s about to get real stinky in Arizona. A rare corpse flower named "Rosie" is expected to bloom Thursday night at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, where it will start to emit an odor that is often compared to the stench of rotting flesh. Luckily for you, it's possible to watch it happen live on Youtube from a safe distance. On Monday, Rosie shed her skin, alerting the staff at the Tucson Botanical Garden that she was about to bloom in the Cox Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion exhibit.

ETA: some guy just walked out with a tray of sliced oranges and placed them around the base of the flower, perhaps they are trying to attract the butterflies? Probably not a good idea to feed wild animals!

A drunken response (mods... you know)...

After it blooms and dies...
... Does it smell good?

(Sorry for the sad attempt at humor but need some about now, so why not!)
