You might have heard or seen something about Morty the rare "Amorphophallus titanum" plant that when it blooms smells like rotten flesh, is blooming at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens!

But what the heck is a "Corpse Flower" and why is it a such a big deal when it blooms? We went to talk with Dave, the CEO of the Botanical Gardens, about Morty and why all the fuss!
