Rafflesia

Parent Category: Plants and Flowers
The huge rafflesia flower, the biggest in the world, looks and smells like rotting meat. The plants are invisible, having no stems or leaves, with their roots imbedded in the vines that they parasitize. Then a cabbage size bud appears and turns into this flower. This parasitic plant attracts our concern because of its rarity and the possibility that it may be on the verge of extinction due to habitat loss. Questions about the "corpse flower" will find their answers here.

One adaptation is that the Plant smells like rotting meat to  attract flies. Those flies spread the pollen from the flower. This  adaptation is physical. Another adaptation would be that it  attaches itself to highgrowing plants so it can reach the canopy of  the rainforest.
