Checked in on the Corpse Flower (Titan Arun) at @amazonspheres yesterday evening. It wasn’t quite ready to bloom just yet. Apparently it smells just like its name and the bloom only lasts about 48 hours. You can see the current status of the bloom at: https://www.twitch.tv/amazonhorticulture
A busy morning with a meeting at @notonthehighstreet followed by a stop at @kewgardens to see this mighty beast! The Titan Arum is pretty spectacular and only blooms every 7-10 years! The smell was quite special but worth it to see this amazing flower. At 118kg I don't think it will be featuring as a flourpot though 😍 now back to work - lots of flowers to make today! #titanarum#corpseflower#kew#princessofwalesconservatory#flowers#rareflowers#london
I just realized that it is always a rare occasion when they bloom...
This is the O.G. Original Grandfather who birthed all the babies that have been spread around the country to various friends.
We have been looking after eachother for exactly 10 years 🌵💜🌵 Since I settled back in Israel.. we have moved 4 houses together too...
And somehow- although I was supposed to be away all week- the universe conspired to keep me at home to witness this beautiful miracle of creation instead 🌸 🌸 #graciasabuelo#sanpedrito#sanpedroflower#flowermedicine#originalgrandpa#blessed 🙏
#neelkurinji is a shrub that blooms every 12 years in Munnar, Kerala. The entire valley is filled with these purple flowers. Some people suggest that Nilgiri Hills get their name from the blue (Neela) of this flower. It’s a sight worth witnessing. .
#funfact : The Paliyan tribal people living in Tamil nadu used the blooming period as a reference to calculate their age :) #rareflowers#munnar#shotoniphone7plus#naturekerakshak
