Episode Transcript

Frederica Freyberg:

Finally tonight, be thankful we are not broadcasting to you in smell-o-vision. That's because you're peeking in on the stinky Titan Arum, more commonly known as the corpse flower, due to the horrendous stench it gives off after it blooms. The flower is on display at the UW Horticulture Department greenhouse. A link to the live shot of the plant can be fount on our website at wpt.org/hereandnow.
