Every year someone posts about the penis plant. Its like mother nature's yearly erection. Did I just write that?

Sorry if this is old stuff to you guys. What can I say, I have an interest in large phallic flora. But if you're interested in tropical plants, do take some time to check out the Fairchild Tropical Garden site, especially the virtual herbarium.
