Houston remains on flower watch

After weeks of waiting, the stinky corpse flower is finally starting to bloom. The flower, known as Lois, started to open Tuesday night. The leaves around the top are curled out a little more. Crowds have been showing up every day at the Houston Museum of Natural Science to see the unusual flower.

When the flower fully blooms, it will be only the 29th corpse flower to bloom in U.S. history. It's said to smell like rotting flesh. The smell isn't that bad just yet.
