OSLO 20040113Gardener Mr. Anne Finnanger reacts to the smell of the exotic flower Amorphophallus konjac, in the Botanical Gardens in Oslo, Norway, Tuesday, January 13, 2003. The Amorphophallus is seen in its rare blossom that lasts only for a couple of days. The plant seems like one very big and beautiful flower but consists of hundreds of very small flowers. And its smell awful. The explanation is that the plant fertilize by catching Blowflies. The flower is also called Devil's Tongue and parts of it are used to cure humans with weight problems. Its common as a wild flower in Asia. Photo Knut Falch / SCANPIX Code 20520
