The Corpse Flower is About to Flower Again
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CSU, Chico Greenhouse
“It first flowered in June of 2004 and flowered again in May of 2007, so appears to have a three-year schedule,” said Tim Devine, greenhouse keeper.
“Ted the Titan,” a corpse flower at UC Davis, just flowered for the fourth time and has flowered every two years since its first flowering, said Devine. His best guess is that the inflorescence on the specimen in the CSU, Chico greenhouse will open around the first of next week, although it could open sometime during the coming weekend.
