There are three stinky plants in the garden and we were hoping that they would open at the same time so that we can cross pollinate them to get a new hybrid. So far only the Indian Giant opened.
The other two plants are going to open over the weekend. We hope that flies will do our work and pollinate them for us. One plant is the regular Sauromatum and the other is an Amorphophallus henryi.
We did a show and tell for some classes in the morning. Most of them thought that it smelled bad. We stopped three girls to look at the pretty flower and to tell us how it smelled. The first on said it smelled good. The second one said the same thing. We were hoping that the third girl would say something different. But that was not true. She agreed with the others. Brianna says that, "People are influenced by others." I am still wondering if the girls really thought that it smelled good.
