More than 1,000 people have flocked to an abandoned gas station in the San Francisco Bay Area to get a whiff of a corpse flower, named for the stench it emits when it blooms, which has been compared to rotting flesh.

Solomon Leyva, a nursery owner in Alameda who deals in exceptionally rare plants, had been posting on social media about his amorphophallus titanum. When he saw a lot of interest in the giant blooming flower, he decided to share the rare plant with his neighbors.

Leyva wheeled it to the abandoned building earlier this week, where a line of people stretched down the block for most of the day, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Amorphophallus titanum, the titan arum, is a flowering plant with the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world.

Amorphophallus titanum is endemic to Sumatra.

Due to its odor, like that of a rotting corpse, the titan arum is characterized as a carrion flower, and is also known as the corpse flower or corpse plant (Indonesian: bunga bangkai—bunga means flower, while bangkai can be translated as corpse, cadaver, or carrion).
