Corpse Plant Timelapse

Mitchell Park Domes logo

The Corpse Flower (Titan Arum) is a fascinating plant that generates a lot of buzz when it blooms - quite literally. The flower, which only opens for around 24 hours every 8-10 years, smells like decaying flesh to attract flies and beetles for pollination. This timelapse footage shows a Corpse Flower opening, and dying off, inside the Tropical Dome over the course of a week in the summer of 2021.
