Corpse Flower Watch: Day 11

7.11.10 Amorphophallus titanum
See a full set of photos of the
Corpse Flower’s growth here.

Today, Lois measures 63.5 inches. Her vertical growth has slowed to only 1.5 inches since yesterday, but at her base she has grown 4 inches in circumference. When we first measured her circumference last week, it was 14 inches; today, it’s 34 inches.

This implies that her vertical growth is almost over and that Lois’ bloom could open anytime in the next 24 hours, most likely sometime this afternoon.
