While our ancestors had good knowledge of the plants and flowers in the country side, most of us have grown up with very little idea, if not none at all, and we are also very much unaware of the plants kingdom, and staying in the cities does not help either. A visit down to the Tenom Agriculture Park not only helps us to recover some of the long lost knowledge but also helps us to gain valuable tips on setting up a garden, be it large or small. Covering an area of more than 200 hectares, this botanic jewel features an impressive variety of flora. The flowers and plants here are arranged into many gardens, just the ornamental garden alone has in itself 21 themed gardens.

Rafflesia Flower

Rafflesia is claimed to be the largest flower on earth, and it can be found only in the rainforests of South East Asia. Rafflesia is rarely seen, because it needs the perfect condition of right humidity and warmth for it to blossom. As many as seven to nine months are needed for the Rafflesia to grow from bud to flower. After blossom the Rafflesia flower will last only 4 to 5 days, as the strong smell of the flower attracts small animals to feast on it.
