Everyone at the U of I Plant Clinic was very excited about the bloom of this stinky flower. In fact, we made sure the U of I Plant Clinic was "in on the action", by sending one of our students to visit the flower at the U of I Conservatory and wave to us from the webcam (Oh, yeah........ and put up a sign with a message from the U of I Plant Clinic)!
