  for botanists, it doesn't get more exciting than this - after 75 years, the titan arum plant has unfurled its leaves and is in full bloom。

  for curious crowds who gathered, they perhaps realised that a once-in-a-lifetime look is more than enough - thanks to its pungent odour of rotting flesh。

  the flower, nicknamed 'corpse flower', bloomed late on good friday at the university of basel, switzerland and is expected to remain open until easter sunday。

  the eight foot plant, which is indigenous to sumatra's rainforests in indonesia, has the largest unbranched shoot in the world. on average, they bloom once in a decade。

  titan arum is coveted by collectors and plant enthusiasts around the world because of its strange blooming patterns。

  it produces umbrella-sized petals which open to a diameter of three to four feet。

  its distinctive smell can be detected from half a mile away. the odour, which is usually strongest at night, is meant to attract pollinators such as carrion beetles and flesh flies。
