The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Although cold weather lingers, hundreds of grape growers and wine makers are exploring new ways to cultivate their best crop. The Ohio Grape and Wine Conference at the 4-H Center is being held on the OSU campus.
