On Friday morning, visitors to New Yorks botanical garden in the Bronx gathered together and began to sniff. They were there to witness one of the worlds largest and smelliest flowers  Amorphophallus titanum, also known as the corpse flower  bloom.

.

It smells like lettuce when you take it out of the bag, a woman yelled from the crowd of onlookers in the Enid A Haupt conservatory. It smells like the aquarium. Like the penguin enclosure, another added. The odor came in waves as onlookers jostled for the best spot to take photos and selfies with the giant flower. Some left holding their noses.

.

Kathryn, an 11-year-old plant enthusiast, said it smelled like her cats litter box but sharper. Her six-year-old brother, Toby, said it smelled worse than one thousand pukes. Like many others, the young girl watched an online live stream of the plant all week anxiously waiting for its petals to open.

.

Friday marked the first time the flower, which takes around a decade to bloom and then dies after 24-36 hours, appeared in the city since 1939. The blooming was highly anticipated due to the gross-out factor and the flowers rarity, said Marc Hachadourian, director of the Nolen Greenhouses at the garden. Its petals began to creep open on Thursday afternoon.

.

The corpse flower uses its foul smell to attract pollinators which typically feed on dead animals. Like a decomposing body, the inside of the flower heats up to help distribute the smell. Its insides are colored blood red.

.

Lolita Gross, a surgical physicians assistant, traveled from New Jersey to see the flower out of both reverence and curiosity. I wanted to be able to see it in my lifetime, she said. But also I work in medicine, so I know what bad smells are, and I wanted to see if it smelled like what they say it smells like. To her, it smelled like faint dead animal.
