Facebook LIVE: The world's largest flower Rafflesia

We went Facebook LIVE with Dr Chris Thorogood, head of plants at Ocford Botanical Gardens to talk about Rafflesia the largest flower on earth.

Watch the video and learn more about the giant creation. The piece will be on display for just eight days – the natural length of time the plant is in bloom for. Share your selfies alongside the plant with us, using the hashtag #RafflesiaInOxford – we look forward to seeing them!
