Amorphophallus titanum Flower not open yet

You can get a glimpse of the crimson inner lining color. The flower is still not open yet.  What we need is a web cam live feed broadcast so we can all click and find out before coming to SBG! or do the slow way - call the info desk and asked.
Admirer of the Giant one.

eXotica @ SBG Amorphophallus Titianum

 'Tip off' by my nature friend, I went to SBG for one sole purpose - taking pics of this rare appearance. Blooming is expected 17-20 November.
Example of what to expect here

Cabbage- like leaves enclosing the single longish inflorescence inside.

Picked up a bird's abandoned nest under Yellow Flame

Intricate woven, structure wrapped around a twig. What happen if the twig is dried up and lose adhesion to the tree....

Another view of the shoe-like comfortable abode. Note a man-made red threads, bits of green moss, unknown white shavings...
