Rafflesia arnoldi – world’s largest flower

The Rafflesis arnoldii is the largest blooming flower in the world,found in the rainforests of Indonesia.
A single flower can open to be as big as 3ft across and weight 7kgs....When the time is right,the flower emits a foul smell kind of rotting flesh in order to attract insects and spread it’s pollen...The flower last only for a few days...
