    Oooo! I have the hybrid Jersey. Is it wrong to look forward to the smell of dead raccoon on ones patio? I wanna show it if it's as foul!

    The truth is, it smells worse than a dead raccoon.... maybe like a few dead raccoons...
    The good news is: it does not stink so much after pollen is carried away by flies.

    I just got the Jersey hybrid as well. No spikes though. Mine was really stinky too, but not for very far. Only a foot or so from the plant.

    That's a very impressive clump of echino you got there... Very well grown and well-bloomed plant!

    Hi Nat, sometimes im a tad lazy and recognise the needs and demands requiring attention with pets terrariums orchids gardening and due to feeling lethargic i prioritize so im not a total selfish prick for the day in question. I often notice on occasion 'that smell'!!!!!! and certainly not a pleasant one at all despite the number of odour control items and toiletries about. Immediately i think 'you lazy git' as i observe duties being neglected with horticultural and herpatology hobbies. Indeed, the 'dead racoon' adjective, a foul smell meandering round the house and garden and comments thrown in aswell to add to the shame. Dont get me wrong i am a clean person hygeneic etc etc but i will leae the dish wash up till next day if theres a good film to watch................................im thinking that readers will know whats coming and yes at points of disorganised chaos have missed or delayed observing bulbo orchids, stapelias in bloom, though in my defense they are not as big, lush and gorgeous as yours. I purchased same as yours this year and bud blasted (to be expected in uk climate shock) but have a few others.

    While my sense of smell is not as good as others , quite an advantage at times but still able to appreciate my brassias, i will notice an influx of flies esp at the point of being on pc - very very annoying things. Now with hindsight no1 - its the dragon and a large bowel movement or no2 - a damp cleaning cloth thats fell outta sight and stagnating - no3- a small (if not abit sad) spent bulbo bloom (or stapelia/hooder).

    I always blame the dragon (poor old man with incontinence issues). Some bulbos are very potent early afternoon time when the breeze is right, but very ephermeral!!!!!!, luckily an advantage exploited as night fall approaches and windows/ vents closed up as temp apllicable. An article in waiting me thinks - ' how to collect bulbos and get away with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! atleast until that night smelling one? arrives which competes with odour strength of the rafflesia.

    Bravo Nat!!!!!!!!!

    i battled the torrential rains to make it to the flower market on a mission to get one today... i had about 3 vendors in mid that i suspected would have one or be able to get me one... taiwanese people are very expressive and humorously blunt people at times, so as i asked each of the growers as to the chances of getting one i was met with the same response from all, "Ai Yo! i know what you're talking about...WHAT DO WANT WITH ONE OF THOSE?! THEY SMELL SO BAD! nobody ever brings those to the market because the stink! come back tomorrow, i can bring one, JUST ONE! and you better come buy it!"
    it was a fun day at the market! (...and i kinda accidentily came home with a stanhopea tigrina )

    Shane, let me know when you go to US, because I will be happy to make a division for you. I have never divided the plant before, so you've got "The right of the first night" (Droit du seigneur ?...I guess Eric can correct me if I am wrong. Unfortunately, I don't speak French)
