The world’s biggest flower is The Titan Arum or corpse flower. This huge flowering structure is described an inflorescence. The titan arum’s inflorescence height is more than 3 metres (10 ft) and open to a diameter of over a metre. Similar to the related cuckoopint and calla lily, it consists of a perfumed spadix of flowers enfold through a spathe that seems like a big foliage. Biggest flower the titan arum, the spathe color is green on the outer surface and dim burgundy red on the inside, and profoundly crumpled. The spadix is sunken and be similar to a big loaf of French bread. The upper portion, which we see in front of the spadix, is covered in pollen. Even as lower portion of this big flower’s extremity is full-fill with brilliant red-orange carpels. The “smell” of the titan arum resembles putrid meat, catch the attention of carrion-eating insect and Flesh Flies, which pollinate it. The inflorescence’s profound red color and texture add to the delusion, which the spathe is a part of meat. For the duration of bloom, the tip of the spadix is just about human body heat that helps the aroma volatilize, this warmth is also thought to help in the delusion, which catch the attention of carcass-eating creature.

Both male and female flowers grow up in the similar inflorescence. At first open the female flowers, after that 1 or 2 days following, the male flowers open. This generally stops the flower from self-pollinating.
