CLEVELAND (AP) - It took 13 years to bloom, and boy does it stink.
The rare titan arum plant bloomed today at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
The six-foot-high plant has a scent described as a putrid or flesh-rotting odor, earning it the nickname Corpse Flower.
The bloom only last a day or so. The plant is on display on the ground floor of the zoo's RainForest.
The zoo joins just 20 institutions nationwide to report a titan arum blooming.
