Everyone, including botanical experts, thought the current heat wave would usher in a bloom this past weekend, but the stubbon 6-foot flower has yet to bloom!
After a weekend of excitement, the high temperatures in New York did not impact the Corpse Flower’s growth as our experts anticipated. The plant is still progressing, but its bloom remains difficult to predict (as nature sometimes loves being). We’ll post updates as we’re able. Thanks to everyone who’s been following along—we’re just as anxious as you are to see the final result!
Keep an eye on the rare bloom when it happens in this live feed from the NYBG.
