Kuningan Regency residents were shocked by the growth of carcass flowers on the house’s yard owned by a resident. Surprisingly, the Suweg carcass flowers bloomed not only one, but dozens.

This flower, whose Latin name is Amorphophallus, first grew five days ago in Manis Hamlet, Linggasana Village, Cilimus District, Kuningan, West Java. Residents around firstly discovered the Suweg carcass flower because it gave off an unpleasant aroma.

“Initially they looked like mushroom, but over time, the carcass flowers grow bigger and produce unpleasant smell,” Inta (60), a local resident said.

Inta, whose house is right in front of the yard which was overgrown with dozens of Suweg, admitted that she was very disturbed by the pungent aroma of the flowers. “The smell was very strong, especially at five in the afternoon until after sunset. I really could smell it. I was disturbed by the smell,” Inta continued.

Kusna (45), another resident, said that the number of corpse flowers that appeared on the yard reached 15 stems with various sizes. She admitted that she was very surprised to see so many Suweg carcass flowers that bloomed.

“I was also surprised that there were around 15 corpse flowers growing. Previously there was one in this village last year but not only one,” Kusna said.

Because of the unpleasant smell from the Suweg carcass flowers, residents then cut the flowers that were about to bloom and had just bloomed. “We cut it because the smell disturbed. When you want to eat, it you smelled. The radius of smell was up to 50 meters,” Kusna said.

Even though it has unpleasant smell, Kusna admitted that she was happy to see those flowers that are classified as rare vegetation.
