Beautiful shot. I many years ago had a similar plant blooming in my apartment. I won't get into the smell, but it wasn't all that bad, and totally sunlight controlled. No sun, no smell.

It was amazing to watch flies commit suicide writhing in this plant until death, I had many to remove every day. If you like the exotic, and off the wall, grow a Stapeliad in a sunny place. Typically, except for southern climes they are indoor potted plants that like a dry winter rest.
