At laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast!

After having a bit of a diva moment/being a little bit camera-shy, Dartmouth’s corpse flower, Morphy, officially opened this afternoon. Hooray! Blessed be the stink.

As a result, Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, and on Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you can’t make it, you can at least watch the live cam here.

#MorphyWatch2018: JK, it’s not open yet

Although the Dartmouth Colleges Life Sciences Greenhouse said Morphy was starting to open earlier today, staff just announced that the corpse flower has yet to open. Le sigh. STOP TOYING WITH US, MORPHY.

Morphy the Dartmouth corpse flower is starting to open; yee-haw

UPDATE: MORPHY YOU ARE KILLING US

The Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse reports that Morphy started to open this afternoon!

Here’s all the background you need to know.

Once Morphy is fully open, which takes a couple hours, it’s expected to close again within a few days. The greenhouse has posted extended hours and will be open until 7 tonight, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

As we reported last week, Morphy is surprising a lot of folks by blooming again rather quickly after 2016. (Typically, corpse flowers bloom every seven or eight years.)

And now the folks at the Dartmouth College Life Sciences Greenhouse say that Morphy could bloom as early as tonight, if not tomorrow, and they have posted extended hours!

Here’s the Morphy livestream. If you go, share your photos with us at uvindex@vnews.com for a chance to be featured on the site!

UPDATE AT 4:45 P.M.:

Tomorrow is another day!
