Yesterday, while we were peeking into the gardens of Malleshwaram homes, we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of this about to bloom (what I thought was the) Brahma Kamal flower. The creator of the universe, Brahma apparently was born from this very flower, hence the name: Brahma Kamal. According to Hindu beliefs, it is considered to be a wish fulfilling flower and the gods apparently showered it down from the heavens upon Lakshman when he revived from his almost fatal injuries during the battle in Ramayana. It’s considered to be a lucky omen to witness the blooming and have it flower within your home; it’s also said that the plant should always be received as a gift. It was exciting nonetheless to see the flower about to bloom and to think of the marvels that lay inside, the bewitching fragrance shortly to be unleashed upon the world. Edit: there is some confusion about which flower is actually Brahma Kamal. As @nicinthegarden explained, this flower is actually an example of a cactus native to Central America called orchid cactus. The original Brahma Kamal, as described above in my caption, is something else. Now that would be an incredible sighting indeed!
For the love of blooms.
These fresh Japanese flowers are just pure beauty.
Oh how flowers bring such joy :) Thank you @edenworks_bedroom @edenworks_ @lumine.jakarta for bringing them to J-town! Hope to visit your shop in shibuya this coming January :)
Day 2 of CH vacay:: Since I'd visited both Boh tea plantation in Sungai Palas and Bharat tea plantation in Tanah Rata during the school excursions with my pupils back in 2011 and 2015, this time around I decided to bring my family to the Boh tea plantation in Ringlet. I thought the road would be okay and not too hard to access, it turned out that I was dead wrong😅. It didn't stop with the narrow twisted road uphill that continuosly going on, the path within the plantation was also not child/elder- friendly. The steps were steep, but my parents continued climbing up half of the steps to snap at least some photos there😥. We managed to take some pictures and chillax at the cafe while enjoying our cakes and tea, mine was Cendol Cheese Cake😍😋.
The 2nd stop was Taman Agrotech MARDI which was really worth it: Mak got to grab some local products while hubster bought some exquisite flower plants!! Abutilon, Jade Vine and Camellia flowers😍💐. Can't wait to have them in our homegarden😃😃. Then, we went to the CH night market in Golden Hills and I bumped into my ex-colleague and his family there😊. Mak and abah were fatigued and as usual minyak panas became their best friend at the end of the day😅😂. #holidaymode#cuticuticameronhighlands#birthdaytreat#birthdaypresent#rareflowers#familyvacation#weneedtogetfit#lenguhpanjattanggaladang
Sejenis bunga zaman purba dijumpai di Indonesia. Sedara sepapat dengan rafflesia agaknya.
@Regran_ed from @baliheadline - Bunga Amorphophallus Titanum / Bunga Bangkai Raksasa sekaligus memegang predikat sebagai Bunga Bangkai Terbesar di Dunia. Bunga ini kini sedang mekar di Desa Lubuk Kembang, Curup Utara, Rejang Lebong, Bengkulu, Indonesia.
Wah bahagianya bisa lihat bunga ini sampai 2018. Semoga tetap lestari dengan terjaganya hutan disekitar populasinya. Bangganya lagi bunga ini habitatnya di Indonesia. Salam leatari.

After few hours hiking through the dense Malaysian rainforest avoiding leeches we finally found what we were looking for: the beautiful rare Raflesia, the biggest flower in the world. While the flowers can be over 100 cm in diameter and weight up to 10 kilos they die after 5 to 7 days after blossoming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While all the other tour companies in the city told us that all the flowers were already dead, the company we chose had a luckier guide! ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
