I recently came across an article on ‘The Corpse Flower’ in a Watchtower magazine which some Jehovah Witnesses left for me when they came by one Saturday.
Corpse Flower, or Rafflesia arnoldii, is the world’s largest flower. It can grow to about three feet (1 metre) in diameter—the size of a bus tire—and weigh some 24 pounds (11 kg).
The petals of Rafflesia arnoldii converge in a large hollow that resembles a pot and can hold up to six litres of water.
