Rafflesia Image

Rafflesia is the largest flower alive. It is parasitic in the fact that it lacks any observable leaves, stems or even roots, so it has to inhabit spaces on a plant host and collect nutrients from it. The Rafflesia is also known as "the corpse flower" or "meat flower" because it emits a very foul odor, which attracts flies that pollinate it. It also takes a very long time to grow: it takes 9 months for the bud to turn into the flower, but the flower only lasts 10-20 days.
