This video was created by Eric L. Gasteiger, Videographer/Producer for Cornell University Communications (Marketing) during the November 2014 flowering of Cornell’s Titan Arum, ‘Wee Stinky’ — part of the Plant Biology Section’s Liberty Hyde Bailey Hortorium collection.

Gasteiger shot the overhead video with a GoPro camera suspended in the rafters of the greenhouse, syncing it with the ground-level time-lapse created from still camera shots by Craig Cramer, communications specialist in the School of Integrative Plant Science.
