Crowds gather in Brussels to smell the world’s stinkiest flower

The national botanical garden in Brussels, Belgium is home to the Titan Arum, better known as the corpse flower. This rare 8-foot-tall plant has only flowered three times since 2008, and it only blooms for three days. What’s even more interesting than its rarity is its smell, which strongly resembles the stench of a decomposing animal. Crowds have gathered at the botanical garden to get a whiff of this stinky plant before it wanes on Wednesday.
