Perry’s Smile Brews Posted on October 12th, 2013 by

Perry the Corpse Flower’s shoot continues to grow rapidly in both height and girth. We took some pictures today (October 11) of Perry with now-standard Perryophiles Nate Friedley (Gustavus ’15), Serenity Mahoney (Gustavus ’15), and Nick Ulen (Gustavus ’15), shown left-to-right in the photo. For direct comparison, I’ve included a photo from last week’s blog post.

Perry will smile soon through parting of the sheathing cataphylls, revealing to all the nature of the shoot (leaf or inflorescence). Some have already peered more deeply… :)
