Default Our Rare Dragon Tongue Lily

Bear with Bats on this,,from my friends in America.
Our Dragon Tongue Lily from Turkey has it's unusual 12''Red Velvet Blossom
with it's Dragon Breath,, has bloomed ,,we know now why it's RARE
Remember A Little House of Horrors with the Man-Eating Plant
Think of over-cooked Cabbages in the House
Think of Roasted Garlic Air-Fresher
We could open a Window 10 degrees,the Neighlor's Dog would start Howling
and the Postman would stop delivering the Mail
We don't know what Nature intended for this Plant!!!,but there is a flock of Buzzards circling our House !!
And add to insult ..my wife calls it HIM!!!
I hope you get a chuckle from this as I had a Plant similar,,very proud ,till IT!!
Flowered,,hid it behind the Curtain as SO [snarling orchid]smelling around the
House claiming the CAT has done something

Bats!

I am glad that I don't have either of those plants. Prolly because I would kill them before they decided to flower from too little/too much sun/water/food/etc.

Its a type of arum lily isn't it?
They're polinated by flies- namely the type of flies that like rotten meat!
