Boston's Franklin Park is getting ready for a rather smelly event.
The zoo's giant corpse flower known as Fester is getting ready to bloom within the next seven to 10 days, according to zoo officials.
The plant, which is scientifically known as Amorphophallus titanum, is called the corpse flower because of its aroma, which resembles that of a rotting carcass in order to attract pollinators.
The bloom, which lasts up to 48 hours, happens years apart. Zoo officials say the last time Fester bloomed was in 2014.
It's unclear exactly when Fester will bloom, but zoo officials are inviting the public to track the plant's progress on its website.
