Carolus still impressive

Even though the spathe has wilted considerably and the stench has mostly waned, Carolus’s spadix still towers nearly 100 inches tall and makes an impressive specimen. Cornell AES grower Paul Cooper cut a window in the spathe for a better view of the flowers, and this morning the male flowers were shedding pollen. (See image below.)
