A Titan Arum coming into flower is as rare as it is spectacular. A plant can go for many years without flowering, and when this special event happens, the bloom lasts only one or two days. Some people travel around the world hoping to see a Titan at the moment it flowers. For botanists and the public, being “in the right place at the right time” to see one of these magnificent plants in bloom can be a once-in-a-lifetime treat. There have been only 150 recorded bloomings since records began.
