Orange Coast College has a new smell to it. That is because of the corpse flower which it now has in its possession. The flower is expected to bloom any day now. Once the flower blooms, it will give off a corpse like smell, hence the name. This plant is part of the Amorphophallus family, and this plant has already taken much of the season to bloom. In fact, the corpse flower resided in the hall of several different colleges in California before finding its way to Orange Coast College.
People from all over the world are expected to get a look at this flower. Once the flower blooms, the school will open its doors to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. five days a week. The school is requesting a small donation under $5 from all individuals who come to see the flower. All of these proceeds will go towards helping the school improve their building and their technology.
