It came from the compost, says Indonesian blogger Fendy. This very strange plant, which Fendy says smells like dead fish or a dead rat, clawed its way out of the ground, so to speak, at his garden in Surabaya, on the island of Java. He surmises the fungusy, mushroomlike plant grew from seed laying dormant in some compost he'd spread in the garden. It looks, he writes, like the hand of a zombie trying to dig its way out of the grave, so he dubbed it Zombie Hand. In spite of the stench, Fendy is going to leave the plant in his garden. "Our curiousity however, doesn't let us to remove it, because it may turn out to grow into some interesting plant," he writes. Um, Fendy--it already has.
