For the second time at the Toronto Zoo, a corpse plant (Amorphophallus titanum) is blooming! This species only blooms for 8-36 hours and this is the second time this species has bloomed in the GTA! Grown from seed, it can take six to ten years for a plant to produce its first flower, after which it can take several more years for it to bloom again. This plant’s predecessor, Pablo “Pe-ew” caso, bloomed back in September 2018.
Who is it for?
Please note, face coverings are mandatory while indoors, this includes the Greenhouse, and at certain outdoor animal viewing areas and if you are unable to keep 6 ft of distance between you and other guests.
