Raflesia plants are parasitic plants that live on the roots of other plants. To get its food, Raflesia must take food from other plants because these plants do not have chlorophyll so they cannot carry out photosynthesis or cannot make their own food.

Raflesia plant stems consist of a network of fine threads that grow inside the host plant tissue. Raflesia is only seen when the flower buds penetrate the host plant. After that over time the size of the Raflesia flower will continue to grow.

Raflesia is the largest flower in the world. Raflesia diameter is about 1 meter. The special feature of the Raflesia flower is that it can give off a foul odor like a carcass. The foul odor issued by Raflesia turned out to have a purpose and function.

Raflesia deliberately emits a foul odor like a carcass that functions to attract insects (flies) to come and help pollination. Flies are indeed very beneficial for Raflesia, because Raflesia breed through pollination assisted by flies.

In addition to semar bag plants, it turns out there are more plants that are included insectivores. The plant is Venus flytrap or also known as the Kejora plant. Then about how the venus plant catches insects? Is it the same as the Semar bag?

The special feature of the venus or kejora plant is having hinged and hairy leaves whose function is to catch insects. The leaves are open waiting for the insects to come. When the insect touches the fine hairs on the leaf, both parts of the leaf will close quickly
