Voodoo Lily creates a rotten smell

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Have you smelt something rotten in the air lately? It might because the Amorphophallus Konjac is blooming and the stench is real!
Wellington Gardens have received complaints of blocked loos and dead animals, which confirm that the Voodoo Lily has reached its full smelly potential.
If you're keen for a smell of good cheese or rotten meat, pop into the Begonia House during open hours for a sniff.
It won't last long, as the plant stops smelling after a day or two!
