Dec 7, 2010: Waterlily, That Will Live In Infamy

Did I say infamy, I meant in famy, because it's the biggest, baddest waterlily of them all.

Quote:
This gigantic waterlily, also known as Victoria amazonica, can be found in the waters of the Amazon. At a stunning growth rate of six inches per day, this waterlily is a shocking display of botanic wonder. The leaves are said to be strong enough to support a human, and can grow up to seven feet in diameter.


Quote:
In addition to magnificent leaves, the flowers that are produced bloom in the night blooming and scent the air. Female flowers, which are white, turn into male, pink flowers and are pollinated by beetles.
They only come out at night and then change sex? Hmmm.

I think I met one of these flowers on Printer's Alley in Nashville.
