Jasmine Flower Information
The stinking corpse lily is called Padma Raksasa by the locals due to the large size of this flower. The flowers are so large that they can be 100 cm in diameter. The weight of a flower can be up to 10kg. This is why the flower is called Padma Raksasa in the local language. It translates to Giant Flower in English. The flower only grows in its natural habitat which is why it is only present in the Bengkulu province of the country.
Moth Orchid is an epiphyte, growing on the trunks of other trees and plants. It is chosen as the floral emblem of the country because of its simple white color. While other orchids are normally brightly colored, this one is plain white.
