Click for fullscreen mode

Have you ever seen the worlds largest flower? Well, over here in Borneo Malaysia, there are a few species of the Rafflesia Flower which is found in selected areas of the rainforest.

My trips to Sarawak to look for this unique flower came true when I chanced upon the huge red flower which takes about 9 months to bloom! Just like an adult.

In the picture above, you see a medium sized Rafflesia Flower. Some are known to grow as big as a meter long!

The picture was taken from my article titled Rafflesia Flower at Gunung Gading, Sarawak Borneo.
