Update: Botanist Jack Keegan reports the 'corpse flower' is now blooming. The flower typically blooms for only a few hours. Miami does not plan to pollinate it so Keegan says tonight's the night to get to Oxford if you want to see it in bloom. Keegan is expecting large crowds. The Belk Greenhouse will be open until at least 11 p.m. Tuesday.
