Carolus still unfurling

Our fear was that Carolus would stall out after getting started. But the spathe continues to unfurl. And the aroma is getting pretty strong, especially in the zone immediately downwind of the plant.

How will Carolus look — and smell — in the morning? We don’t know. But please stop by to find out for yourself.

 Plant Sciences major Patty Chan and CUAES greenhouse grower Paul Cooper prepare to deploy a sticky trap inside the spathe to see what carrion-loving pollinators are attracted by Carolus's scent.
