While it is not official, the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) is billed as “the world’s biggest flower.”

It only blooms once every 3–7 years, and it is blooming now at the National Botanic Garden in Meise, Belgium, which has suddenly become a very popular place.

The bloom only lasts three days.

Besides being big, the flower is known for its extremely unpleasant aroma, but visitors have been flocking to see it anyway.
