I know, I know. Too many plants! But this one was too freaky to pass by. Does this not remind you of things Herman Munster? Or a starfish reincarnated as a cactus flower? If you look *closely, you will see a little mound of flies (ick, yes, flies) that cannot resist the (fly-) aphrodisiac the flower contains. And it’s growing in a pot somewhere in La Mesa… [sound effect: Dr Evil’s laugh]

  1. This particular flower emits an odor of rotting meat that flies can not resist. This is also the plants clever way of ensuring pollination. I guess you could say “you catch more flies with rotting meat than honey” Colleen :)
