Rainforest Flowers


Rainforest flowers can be as spectacular as the colourful rainforest birds and as variable as rainforest animals.


Some of the most famous are rainforest orchids.


Orchids are  the species-richest family of plants, with 25,000 species in the world.

And some of the more interesting are the carnivorous pitcher plants, and the rafflesia flower - the largest flower in the world.
