A Corpse Flower Named Woody

Joan Leonard, coordinator of OSU’s Biological Sciences Greenhouse, said a story about her soon-to-bloom corpse flower, named “Woody,” has gone global. The Dispatch published this story about the amorphophallus titanum on Saturday.

Also called the corpse flower for it’s intense rotting meat smell, Leonard said it’s gathering quite a following. Students have reported hearing foreign language news reports, and it hasn’t even flowered yet.

People can track the corpse flowers progress by visiting the website or watching on their webcam. The university has already posted visiting hours for the plant, which is set to bloom in early May.
