The world’s biggest flower – Titan Arum – has bloomed in the Swiss botanical garden in Basel. Online cameras have helped to capture the remarkable event.
The world’s largest flower is 2.27 meters tall and it normally blooms for just a couple of days once every few years. The last time Titan Arum blossomed in the Swiss botanical garden was in April 2011. Before that, the plant blossomed in Switzerland only in 1936. Titan Arum originates in the jungles of Sumatra. Apart from being the biggest flower in the world, it is also one of the stinkiest. It has an odor reminiscent of decomposing flesh. Voice of Russia, RT, Surce: Voice of Russia
