The smell of death will soon be wafting through the air at Dartmouth College’s greenhouse. 

A corpse flower named “Morphy” has started to bloom at the college’s greenhouse. 

If you are wondering how this flower got its name, it’s because it gives the smell of rotting flesh once it opens up. 

The flower only lives a few days after blooming, the plant at Dartmouth is 7 feet tall.

For those who want to see the flower in person can visit the greenhouse on Friday until 7 p.m. and will be open for visitors on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  The greenhouse is located on the 4th floor, Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center.
