The corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as the stinky plant or titan arum, is on display at the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory in Washington, DC. Once fully open, the titan arum may remain in bloom for 24 to 48 hours, and then it will collapse quickly.
I was wondering if you could help to identify this cactus. I saw it while walking down a street of mid-century homes while visiting Palm Springs. I love its color and form, really got my attention. I live on the east coast and would love to care for a (much) smaller plant of this type indoors, if you happen to know any specifics.
Thanks for your time!
The cactus is a Myrtillocactus, also known as the Whortleberry Cactus.
