This is the bud-stage. It takes 9 months to journey from bud to bloom
A bigger bud.
Almost ready to bloom.
The beautiful flower.
The beautiful Rafflesia cantleyi.
This is what the inside of the Rafflesia looks like.
The Rafflesia, as seen from the trek.
The bloom starts to wither after 3 - 4 days. This is the sad decline.
