Rafflesias from

5°29' 05" N, 116°58' 57" E
The world's largest flower, called Rafflesia, can have a diameter up to one metre and can weigh up to 10 kilograms. It also smells like rotting flesh. We saw and photographed this specimen in a private garden in Sabah, Borneo, the householder charging people to view it. Rafflesia is a parasitic plant that lacks roots, stems, and leaves.
