Giant rafflesia

Senckenberg Nature Museum Frankfurt

Senckenberg Nature Museum Frankfurt

The Giant Rafflesia produces the world’s largest flower with a diameter of up to 94 centimeters. It grows in the rainforests of Southeast Asia. The Giant Rafflesia has neither leaves nor a stem and, except for its flower, lives as a parasite inside a vine. The bud continues to grow for about 8 months, until the flower opens – but it only blooms for three days.
