      Indonesia actually has the largest flower in the world! This flower is called the Rafflesia and it’s pretty cool. Not only is it the biggest flower we know of, it is a parasitic plant. This means it gets its energy by feeding off other plants, so doens’t have roots or leaves. Also the flower itself smells of rotting flesh and poo in order to attract flies to pollinate it (nice!)
