HomeBlogs Raflesia Park Raflesia Park is part of the Batang Palupuh Nature Conservation Center
in Agam district. Although it has many other species, this 3.4 hectare
conservation center is focused on conserving the Raflesia flower, which
can only be found on Sumatra Island. This flower usually blossoms during
wet seasons i.e., from mid to end of year.
Raflesia Park is a conservation center for three types of Raflesia
flowers; Raflesia Arnoldi, which can be 1,5 meters wide when blossoming,
Raflesia Arizentis with a 15 cm diameter when blossoming, and Raflesia
Oumor Pupolus Titanum. Although it is more like a forest, this center
is called a park because many Bunga Bangkai grow here. Outside this
area, Raflesia flowers also grow in three to four areas.
