Corpse Flower – It’s Time To Bloom or Bust!

The world is still waiting for the Corpse Flower to bloom at the Houston Museum of  Natural Science.  This morning 2 On The Beat received the note below.   It explains what the staff is doing to nudge “Lois”  along to fully blooming.

To nudge Lois along, we are making it even hotter in the Cockrell Butterfly Center.  We are keeping the temperature upwards of 80 degrees in there to ensure it doesn’t stunt her growth.  The temperature is being raised; we have kept the plastic on the doors, added lights and a humidifier.  While this does seem wild – especially since it is pretty hot outside already and we are making it even hotter inside – we want to do everything we can to help Lois.  – Latha Thomas VP, Marketing and Communications
