Blooms every 40 years

Amorphophallus titanum (Araceae), also called the “cadaverous flower” is one of nature’s jewels that so many may never see. The largest flower in the world was blooming in Mexico recently, measuring two meters high and weighing 75 kilos. It has the peculiarity of blooming only during three days every 40 years.

You’d only see it once or twice in a lifetime! Shouldn’t this qualify as the “8th Wonder of the World”?

Thanks to the BA for alerting us to this!
