The lovely Morticia at the Franklin Park Zoo is having spectacular sights and about 9,000 people have come to see it for it beautiful looks.
The amorphophallus titanium and the Morticia better known as the “corpse flower,” which originates in the region of western Indonesia, now has began to bloom in the Franklin Park Zoo greenhouse, according to zoo representatives.
According to Harry Liggett, who is the manager of Horticulture and Grounds at Zoo New England, the average, the blooming process takes three to four hours; it will be fully bloomed within the next few hours.
The director of communication of horticulture at Zoo New England, Brooke Wardrop said, the flower will be fully bloomed by the time crowds can revisit for free on Wednesday morning, in the timing between 8 to 9:30 a.m.
The flower species Morticia has been portrayed by some viewers as a “once in a lifetime experience,” because this flower typically last only for two days and then the plant does not bloom again for about 15 years.
