  [Aroid-l] Rafflesia flower size
From: bonaventure at optonline.net on 2007.01.24 at 02:52:39(15115)
Regarding the size of the flower of Rafflesia - is that a single bloom or an inflorescence, such as an Amorphophallus or other aroid, or more relevent, a Pointsettia? Euphorbs have a cluster of inconspicuous flowers often surrounded by showy bracts. There appear to be individual small flowers within the center of the "bloom" in the photographs I had examined. Is there possibly any truth to this? What is the largest (individual) flower in the plant kingdom?
