There's a titan arum - a corpse flower - blooming at the Eden Project in Cornwall. For years, it stores energy: and then for 48 hours, it heats up and sends out the smell of decay and death through the rainforest. And it stinks.

(Full disclosure: the Eden Project covered expenses for my trip to visit them, but had no editorial control or sign-off on the video!)
