The stench of rotting flesh will soon infiltrate the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) when a rare plant known as a corpse flower blooms and releases an odor similar to that of rotting flesh.

Despite the stench, horticulturalists and the public are flocking to see it, partly because the corpse flower blooms only for a few days once every seven to 10 years.

The New York Botanical Garden has set up a live camera for others to monitor the flower online because its monitoring cycle is unpredictable.

The corpse flower reportedly releases its infamous odor in a 24 to36-hour peak bloom.
