TPS Lab's plant mascot, an Amorphophallus titanum, has finally arrived!

This plant, also known as a Corpse Plant, earns its morbid nickname due to the unpleasant smell it emits.

Despite the odor, this unusual flowering plant is quite beautiful in full bloom. To see a picture of this plant in bloom, click here:

Waiting for the Amorphophallus Titanum bloom takes patience. In general, it takes between 7-10 years in cultivation before the first bloom occurs. It can take anywhere from 2 to 10 years for it achieve full bloom again.

TPS Lab hopes to bloom the new mascot plant in less than 10 years.
