I thought I'd show you a couple of plants that make a change from daffodils and tulips. They are both insectivorous plants - they grow in poor soil and get most of their nutrition from insects. The monster on the left is the biggest pitcher plant in the world, and I used it as one of the jinx box's disguises in Jinx on the Divide. The plant below is the biggest flower in the world, and it smells even worse than a sinistrom. It's called Rafflesia. I took both of these photographs when I was in Borneo in 2004.
