Trivia: Did you know… that Rafflesia arnoldii is the largest (single) flower in the world?

Rafflesia arnoldii is a rare flower found in the rainforests of Indonesia. It can grow to 3 feet across and can weigh up to 11 kilograms. A parasitic plant, with no visible leaves, roots, or stem. Rafflesias are always found on a host plant which it uses for its nutrients and water needs. Many of the Rafflesia species are threatened or endangered, the major reason why Indonesia adopted Rafflesia as one of its National Flower – to help in the conciousness of preserving the nature around us and the Rafflesias.

This flower take months to develop, and when it reaches it’s most developed state, it will only last a few days. The Rafflesia flower only lives in primary rainforests (i.e. undisturbed), making it even more difficult to keep it alive and thriving. Through Indonesia, a strong message to everyone: let’s help and save Rafflesia before it is all gone.
