    ,I’d like to thank you for a very beautiful list.
    just one small issue, at number 8, the parrot’s beak you claim that sunbirds have long been extinct.
    that’s not true, of the sunbird family seven species (out of 132) are threatened by extinction today.
    again, great list.

    Just to point out, you have completely failed to realise that Amorphophallus titanum is not the same as Rafflesia.

    The Ghost Orchid can be either Dendrophylax lindenii, the American Ghost Orchid, or Epipogium aphyllum, the Eurasian Ghost Orchid. Your description of it is a weird mix of them both.

    I agree with Harry said that The Corpse Flower (Amorphophallus titanum) is not the same as Rafflesia. You can find rafflesia arnoldi pictures on the internet and you can find how different rafflesia and corpse flower..

    You don’t even know about Lacandonia schismatica!! For a rare plant, L. schismatica is the rarest! It has the androecium (stamens) and the gynoecium (pistils) invested… with the androecium at the center and the gynoecium to the outside… Is the only flower that have that arrangement…. Evolutoinary, is the rarest of plants and it’s mexican 😀

    Thank you for posting this list. It helped me identify the gorgeous Jade Vine that I just photographed in my landlords garden at the Sunshine Coast, QLD Australia.

    Millennia*, not “millenniums”. Wonderful list, but the quality of writing suggests either a lack of respect for the medium and your audience or simply a lack of education. That on top of some of the comments makes me wonder whether the research is genuine as well.

    Hello i’ve got jade vine flowers since around 3 months at my place in mauritius! it’s falling just around & we must throw them away everyday. pls contact me for more pics!

    You confused the American Ghost Orchid (Dendrophylax lindenii) with Epipogium aphyllum. Epipogium aphyllum (true Ghost Orchids) is the plant found not to have chlorophyl and work symbiotically with a basidomycete fungi to obtain nutrients.

    Your picture represents Dendrophylax, not Epipogium.

    Beautiful list, nevertheless.
