However, the Tucson Botanical Gardens says more butterflies will be added to the exhibit today.

The Amorphophallus Titanum, more commonly known as the corpse flower, is scheduled to bloom this Thursday or Friday evening at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

The corpse flower is one of the rarest and largest flowers in the world, not to mention one of the only flowers that emits the smell of rotting flesh. The process will take around 24 hours. National Geographic explained that while the rare flower smells awful to humans, it is very effective at attracting insects.

A live stream from YurView Arizona shows visitors to the gardens taking pictures with the giant flower, nicknamed "Rosie", according to Tucson News Now.

The flower has already passed its expected bloom date.

The wait will be shorter for Rosie's second bloom, which is expected in about two years.
