    Default Mastigion putidum

    Also known as Bulb./Cirr. fascinator, it smells a bit like those pellets of fish food you can get for ponds etc. Luckily the scent is very vague!
    Everything is moving og wiggling on this flower..!

    I am sure it is not as bad as the Rafflesia arnoldii. Large, beautiful bloom (up to 3ft accross and weighing up to 15lbs), but smells like rotting meat. The bloom shown looks like something out of a cartoon.
