The world’s biggest flower Rafflesia, also known as ‘monster flower’. This plant is known for its distinguishable properties and the flower’s extremely unpleasant smell.

The plants of this species do not have root, stem and leaves and caters to its needs with host plants and it appears only when its flowers on the host plant bloom and now the Indonesian Forest Department officials have discovered possibly the biggest flower.

According to the Western Sumatra Natural Resources and Conservation Center, about 4 feet of Rafflesia flowers have been discovered in the western Sumatra forest, which is the biggest flower ever found. Strangely the same flower and the same plant was discovered in 2017,  as the biggest flower but this new flower is 4 inches wide.

The open mouth of this flower excludes a smell that resembles a molten flesh or a corpse and getting closer is not easy for everyone and his life is short an dies in only one week after opening mouth.
