Seriously, I have a fascination with taking the temperature of Skunk Cabbage.
Skunk Cabbage flowers (hidden inside those reddish hoods) were one of the signs of spring that I saw
yesterday when I was out rambling. I couldn't pass on the chance to set up some thermometers and compare the air temperature with the temperature inside the Skunk Cabbage hoods.
May I remind you that inside those cozy Skunk Cabbage spathes the temperature could be as high as 81 degrees... isn't that a pleasant thought?
I went into more detail about Skunk Cabbage and its thermogenic capabilities in a previous post and I continued with another post about Skunk Cabbage and the vortices it uses to waft its foul odors.
