Noted with thanks Katie. Isn't it too bad that the Corpse Flower has such a terrible odour, as it is beautiful. I also love the Giant Quiver Trees, that can grow over 35 feet, and are favoured for their aloe.

I believe Rafflesia flowers are native to Malaysia and are largely found in the malaysian forests.
