Bloom Watch Continues for 'Corpse Flower' at the Huntington - Pasadena Now
It lasts only a couple days.
Once blooming begins, it usually takes several hours until the flowers fully open.
To pollinate, staff then uses a paintbrush to dab up pollen from a male plant and applies it to the stigmas of the female flower.
“The window of opportunity for this is roughly one day because on the first day after opening, the male flowers shed their pollen and the female flowers are no longer receptive,” according to The Huntington statement. “We do this to prevent autogamy, or self-pollination, so we can maximize the distribution of genes and maintain more adaptive genetic diversity.”
The expected bloom will be the eighth at The Huntington since 1999. Most recently, people lined up to get a view, and a whiff, of the massive flower in July of 2019.
The Huntington remains closed to the public to the pandemics, but a live stream of the flower can be viewed online at youtu.be/tm1MJD-Qq5E.

How to Make Paper Flowers - The New York Times
There is beauty in the handmade; Mother Nature takes care of perfection.What you needNewspaperAcrylic craft paint and paintbrush (optional)PencilScissorsToothpicksClear-drying glue (like Elmer’s)Heavy paper plate or similar-size piece of cardboard (optional, for wreath)Hot glue (optional, for wreath)Credit...Jodi Levine for The New York TimesHow to get startedIf you’d like, paint the newspaper. Water down the paint a bit first if you’d like to be able to see the newspaper print through it.Cut out the template here, or, even better, make a sturdy reusable template: Tape the paper to a piece of thin cardboard (like from a recycled cereal box) and cut through the template and cardboard at the same time.

Line up the straight bottom as you roll; the curved top will flare out a bit. You can add a few dots of glue inside the roll as you’re going if you’d like, or just glue the end closed. Gently slide the rolled-up paper off the toothpick and squeeze some glue into the roll and on the bottom.Curl the petals open and use a toothpick to curl the edges of petals.To make a wreath, cut a ring base out of a heavy paper plate (or trace a bowl). The one used to make our wreath is about a ½ inch thick and 6½ inches in diameter. Hot-glue the flowers to the ring. Cut out some almond-shaped leaves and fold them in half to give them some dimension. Glue a few leaves under t... May 1, 2020
Where to see bluebonnets and wildflowers in Dallas-Fort Worth while social distancing - culturemap.com
Proska says besides bluebonnets, we'll see Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, Evening primrose, Mexican Hat, and Coreopsis blooming now. Photo-worthy patches have sprung up along roads in Mansfield, Azle, and areas around Ennis — even if the official trails are closed.
According to posts in the Facebook group Texas Bluebonnets and Wildflowers, Indian Paintbrush (which can be various shades of red, white, orange, yellow, and purple) are abundant in far west Fort Worth, off Interstates 30 and 20, toward Weatherford.
Each year, bluebonnets paint the landscape along highways 183, 121, and 114 near DFW Airport. And they dot stretches of I-30 within the Fort Worth and Arlington city limits, too.
For those willing to drive a bit out of town, pretty patches and gorgeous fields have been spotted in Plano. One is near the J.C. Penney headquarters on Legacy Drive. Another is along the Bluebonnet Trail Greenbelt, just east of where the trail crosses Custer Road. Frisco's got some pretty ones just outside Zion Cemetery.
For those making it a day-long adventure, farther out of the Metroplex, there are patches at the entrance to Mallard Park in Lavon (about 30 miles north of McKinney) and fields of wildflowers off Highway 75 in Denison and Sherman, spotters say.
Practical considerationsBefore you head out on a country drive, remember we are living in a world without pit stops at roadside Whataburgers. Plan snacks, drinks, and potential restroom situations accordingly.
Also, remember the "groups" rule. If you approach a pretty patch and another family is taking photos, ride on by.
Some regular guidelines to keep in mind, too: Don't trespass on private property. Don't pick the flowers. Step gently so you don't squish them, and don't leave anything behind. Also, beware of snakes, fire ants, and other critters that might be hiding among the flowers.
Wildflowers from the comfort of your couchCan’t get outside? Enjoy a virtual tour of what’s blooming around the state on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Flickr page, populated with wildflower sightings from state parks and wildlife management areas, or its Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts, where anyone can share photos of the great outdoors.
Proska says the INaturalist app will allow you to see what’s in bloom in different regions around the Metroplex.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin also posts sightings on a curated Instagram account, @texaswildflowerwatch (#txwildflowers2020) and has a narrated virtual tour of the Center.
