Orange Coast College is opening their doors for visitors to come and witness the unusual corpse flower, located on display in the administration building from 10:00am until 6:00pm in the evenings. I can imagine what you’re thinking right now, crazy right?. This particular flower was given the nickname corpse flower because of the awful stench that is released as the blooms begin to open. Many have compared the scent to decomposing tissue. People from all around have already gathered to witness such a funny sight. Students at the college made it even better by giving the flower a more human-like name, Little Dougie.
Little Dougie has been pollinated by hand over the course of its lifetime. The flower has been at the school since 2006 and currently weighs over 30lbs. The largest it can get is around 200lbs! Thousands of guests have already taken the opportunity to experience this unique opportunity. Visitors are encouraged to make a 3.00 donation, which will help fund scholarships for the horticulture programs.
