The Corpse Flower began to open Saturday afternoon, peaked in the middle of the night, and spent its Sunday getting pollinated and starting to close in front of the crowds who poured in to see and smell this wacky botanical wonder. By Monday (pictured in this set), it was pretty much closed back up AND STILL CRAZY BEAUTIFUL. (And—not pictured here—botanists collected pollen that’ll be frozen ‘til it can be used on another bloom here or elsewhere.)

And now we wait to see whether the pollination worked. It’ll be quite a while before we know, though, so The Huntington’s tumblr will be going back to its regular, non-Stinky5 programming. Thank you for tuning in.

This is the second one. I’ve tried researching what it could be, but I haven’t been able to find it. It looks really really similar to Crassula schmidtii, but the flowers are white and it seems smaller than the pictures I’ve seen of schmidtii, with thinner and more delicate branching on the flower stems.

You were on the right track with the crassula family, but I think it’s a Crassula Exilis (and a beautiful one at that! look at those flowers!)

A whole lotta rosehips…

They’re part of the world-wide movement towards ‘apicentric’ beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal.

I thing I will hang a few of these once I am sure I have planted enough diverse flowering material to support colonies for the whole season: this means waiting for a few of the flowering trees to grow up.
