Local news yesterday reported the flowering at the Eden Project, so I had to go up and take a look!
Posted Image. Stands about seven feet tall in its pot. Don't know what it's doing flowering at this time of the year!

If anybody wants more, there is a live webcam on the Eden site www.edenproject.com .

Cooking with a gas mask on could be fun... :(

It didn't actually smell of anything much - this is the second one I have seen that hardly smelt, but it may have been more pungent on the first day it opened. Perhaps someone who has lived with one can comment. Aidan - are you expecting strange looks from the neigbours?

Ah, but in a confined space like a kitchen?
