Fun for the Kids at the Volunteer Park Conservatory

If you're in that dark Tim Burton mood (or have kids who like the dark edges), here's some fun stuff.

This article was in the PI about the feedings for the carnivorous plants at the Volunteer Park Conservatory. Also, Waldo, the Corpse plant is blooming as well. Within
the 40-year lifespan, the plant may bloom only 2-3 times. It's stinky period has likely passed but it's one cool plant.

I don't know why my links never work- is it cause I am using Safari?
Do a search for Richard Attenborough- secret life of plants & titan arum.
