Re: Where in the World #289
 
Is this particular plant growing in "the western world"?

Greenrider Tresa Oct 8 2011 05:12 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Rianne and Lily: No
Hans: Yes

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Hmmm, okay, back to basics I guess. Is the island group, a Polynesian* one?

*Most Polynesian cultures have been influenced at some stage by Hans' "western world" question so hence why I'm asking.

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Dragon fan: Yes
Lily: No
And apologies to Jube and Hans: I should have said no to Hans. Again, sorry. Guess I had too much else on my mind at the time.

Re: Where in the World #289

Greenrider Tresa Oct 10 2011 05:46 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Dragonfan: Yes
Hans: Partly, if I"m reading the map right...

Rianne Oct 10 2011 09:00 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
is the other half of it in the indian ocean?

Dragon Fan Oct 10 2011 10:01 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Ouch, I was hoping for a no, on that question. Is it in the western half of the island group?

Hans Oct 11 2011 07:27 AM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
Is it on the island of Borneo?

Lily Oct 11 2011 05:44 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
I think it's the worlds largest flower which can grow up to a metre in diameter, found in the jungles of Borneo

Greenrider Tresa Oct 11 2011 06:08 PM

Re: Where in the World #289
 
And Lily has it! :) Since Hans named Borneo first, they can share the win. Rianne, from what I can tell the Indian ocean isn't involved at all.. .
For those who don't know, it's called the rafflesia arnoldii.

Re: Where in the World #289

Re: Where in the World #289

jube Oct 13 2011 08:27 AM
