  It is a parasite and grows on large woody vines, the seeds germinating in the rough bark of the stems of the vine, which lie on the ground. The Rafflesia grows in the mountain forests of Malaysia. The Rafflesia has no green, for it does not contain chlorophyll, which gives plants their green color. The leaves of Rafflesia are like small fish-scales and the only unusual feature of the plant is its flower. This has a fetid smell resembling, that of rotting meat, which attracts several kinds of insects.
