The Amorphophallus titanum was donated for viewing by a Hilo private collector and was hand pollinated by a botanist at UH Hilo. The latin name for the flower reportedly means "mishapened penis." The corm, or bulb, of the plant is the largest in the world weighing up to 110 pounds. Similar plants have also recently bloomed in Switzereland and at Ohio State University.

Ramsay is live from Naniloa Volcanoes Resort.
