The largest flower in the world!


I stumbled across this by sheer accident a tonight and it was MOST interesting!

Common Name: Titan Arum, Corpse Flower, Bunga Bangkai

Get a load of the sheer size of this flower!

I just wish that I could grow one, but we’re way too “non-tropical” here in central Texas.. Pretty cool plant!
“Flcrazy” would love one of these! {chuckle}

Sorry, but the picture doesn't appear. However, I do know this flower and no, Flcrazy, no way would you want to have it. It stinks! I have seen and smelled it in the Botanical gardens in Bandung.

Those flowers are out of this world and out of our human time-scales !
Very, very interesting.
