Looks like June is blooming season for the Lords of Stink - 4 of them together, this is indeed an occasion to remember....mai tu liao, setup the stage quickly for a photo session.

The 4 lords featured are : Amorphophallus paenifolius (top), albidus (left), koratensis (right) and an unknown miniature, perhaps obscurus (bottom).

What's more, paenifolius has been very generous with its odour .....

Yes they have been grown for between 9 years to 8 months here, some maybe frequent bloomers but to have them at the same day is unusual.

Yes I supposed you are right about the novelty aspect but I doubt friends would like to converse before them as it would be grossly unpleasant.

Here's another one that bloomed for me just a few weeks back
