12 year old Bucky the Titan Arum is about to bloom for the second time, and people are waiting for its parfum de roadkill with bated breath:

Big Bucky’s back. The rare, big and extremely stinky flower that caused
a sensation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison when it last bloomed
in 2001 could become the world’s largest flower when it blooms again
next week.
