THE BRONX -

It's about to get stinky at the Botanical Garden.         

A corpse flower is expected to bloom any day now at the garden, and its smell attracts visitors from all over the world.

The flower apparently smells like rotting meat and takes about seven years to grow. The flower only blooms for about a day-and-a-half.

The Botanical Garden is streaming video of the flower blooming live online.
