‘Wee Stinky’ matches personal best

Saturday morning, ‘Wee Stinky’ measured 76 inches tall — matching its maximum height just before blooming in November 2014.

That flowering was from a 50-pound corm. This time around, the corm weighed 65 pounds. So it’s not surprising that the height of the spadix is shattering the plant’s personal best.

How big will ‘Wee Stinky’ get? When will the spathe unfurl and the big stink begin?

That’s tough to tell. But you can sign up for email updates if you’d like us to keep you posted.
