Heard about those - do they have a strong smell?

Jim Downs
Barb, I don't recall there being an odd or offensive odor. It was roped off with a sheet of plastic above it to protect it from the sun. The rope keeps you from getting closer than 6 feet so I didn't have an opportunity to stick my head inside the center! It seemed to have the texture of a mushroom, perhaps a bit crispier.

Giant Parasitic Flower Diameter is just under one meter.
