GALVESTON, TX -- Get ready to plug your nose there's a flower at Moody Gardens causing quite a stink.

That would be the Corpse Flower named "Morticia". A fitting name since it smells like rotting flesh when it blooms.

And the rare flower is blooming for a second time in Galveston the last time was in 2012.

The Corpse Flower can take from 2 to 10 years to bloom.

Moody Gardens plans to stay open longer once the flower fully blooms.

You can also watch the smelly flower on its web cam. Click here for a live look at the flower.
