Mr. Stinky returns. Fairchild Tropical Garden in Coral Gables, Fla.,
announced that for the 1st time in the U.S., an Amorphophallus titanum
has bloomed twice. Mr. Stinky, named for the rotting-meat odor it
emits, also bloomed in 1998, which was the 1st time in 60 years the
rare species had bloomed in the U.S.
