Wow!
This is Incredible!
One of nature's jewels that so many may never see.
The largest flower in the world was blooming in Blanco, Veracruz, Mexico.
Two meters (6 5/8 feet) high and weighing 75 kilos (165 1/3 lbs).
It has the peculiarity of blooming only during three days every 40 years.

You'd only see it once or twice in a lifetime!
Shouldn't this qualify as the "8th Wonder of the World"?






Amorphophallus titanum (Araceae), also called "cadaverous flower"
Has the peculiarity of blooming only during three (3) days every 40 years.
