4 Rafflesia Flowers Blossom Simultaneously in Bengkulu

TEMPO.CO, Bengkulu - Bengkulu Province is known for its Bukit Daun Conservation Forest located in North Bengkulu District. A report shows that currently, four Rafflesia Gadutensis flowers are blossoming in unison at the conservation.

“The flowers’ diameter reached an average of 48 cm to 50 cm,” said Coordinator of North Bengkulu Rare Flower Care Community (KPPL), Riki Septian, on Wednesday, January 11, 2019.

The public can witness this rare occurrence, which will last for the next four days, near the conservation’s Palak Siring waterfall. Each Rafflesia flower, according to Riki, is only separated 3-4 meters from each other.

People have visited the location since the flowers started to bloom on January 7, 2017.

Rafflesia gadutensis is one of four Rafflesia species identified at Bengkulu’s forest. The other three are Rafflesia arnoldi, Rafflesia bengkuluensis, and Rafflesia hasselti.

As the iconic flower from Bengkulu, the provincial government has set an agenda of "Tour de Rafflesia" (Jelajah Sepeda Rafflesia) in May 2017 to attract tourists visiting the region. As well as to promote Bengkulu’s tourism year in 2020 with the tagline of “Visit Bengkulu 2020”.
