What died in the back bedroom???
"Why, nothing, the stench you are smelling is coming through the window from outdoors. It's nothing more than the patch of Amorphophallus blooming under the open window."
This is what I expect to be asked in a couple of days at the Voodoo Lilies I have planted in my back flower border right under the bedroom window pop into bloom.
Note to other gardeners. Makes a great foliage plant for shade, and the flowers are interesting to look at, but probably NOT a good idea to plant them near the house, especially under a window you keep open in the spring/early summer. Or, you can always choose to sacrifice the flowers and disbud them to avoid the odor of rotten carrion.
Here's a link about them with photo (Not my plants):
A fun but malodorous bulb:
