Corpse Flower Blooming?!?

The corpse flower (amorphophallus titanum or titan arum) is one of the largest flowers in the world.  It takes between 7 and 10 years for a plant to bloom, and gets its name because it releases odor reminiscent of rotting animals as it blooms. Currently, the New York Botanical Garden has a corpse flower about to bloom; the above video is the live cam on the plant.  I hope to see it bloom online, though I'm not holding my breath.
