So, for those of you who don't know, I'm a plant nerd. I LOVE plants...and I'm a graduate student in Botany (well, for the next few weeks anyway). I got my Bachelor's degree at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN and right now they have a very unusual plant in bloom (and its getting a LOT of attention).
Go here to see a news story on it.
Gustavus also has a webcam set up so that even if you can't visit it yourself, you can still see it. Although, you won't be able to smell it (which is probably a good thing). After all - its not called a corpse flower for nothin'!
