Visitors are streaming into the Denver Botanic Garden to watch the city’s first ever blooming of a giant Amorphophallus titanum, otherwise known as a “corpse flower.” The stinky flower has been growing at the garden for years.

The plant releases a pungent smell when it blooms, hence the name. After about two days, the stench will subside. But that won’t stop plant fans from lining up at the garden’s entrance to get a sniff.

If you want to see the plant’s beauty without getting a whiff of the stench, you can watch the live feed of the plant’s blooming inside a greenhouse above.
