Virginia Tech apparently owns a very rare Corpse Plant, which is just about to bloom. This is an extremely uncommon event, and only lasts for a day or two. I went over today, and the husk had fallen off, meaning that the bloom should probably open tomorrow. If you've got a few minutes to spare and live anywhere near Blacksburg, you might want to visit the greenhouses on Washington Street. Just go behind the glass greenhouses, and there's a plexiglass bunker that says "Biology Department." It's worth a visit.
