Warning: This story has a negative air.
Flower lovers may want to hold their noses.
A so-called corpse flower is about to bloom.
The flower smells like rotting flesh, or at best, dirty socks.
It's five-feet-tall and blooms are rare.
The last time the plant bloomed was in 2010 and before that in 1995.
Michigan State plant biologist Peter Carrington says it should flower next week.
The bloom lasts only one or two days.
