Many trees have grown into incredible height, some with a root system reaching high over ground creating a true feeling of walking around in the rain forest.

Scissor Pond at Bogor Botanical Garden

The gardens founded 1817 were very old yet very well maintained and beautiful. The many ancient trees, canopies of vines and flowers and sheer abundance of exotic tropical plants gave you a sense of sanctuary. With all the water features and landscaping adding to the scenic stroll throughout the grounds, it was hard not to want to take a picture of everything you saw. The bamboo garden was wonderful, here and there you would find benches to sit down and contemplate the beauty of the garden.

Presidential Palace at Bogor Botanical Gardens

It is a pleasure to be able to walk among such mature trees which are marked with the Latin name. Try checking out the park sites and facilities: JJ Smith and Lady Raffles Memorial, Scissor Pond, Bat habitat tree, Teisjmann Park, Dutch Cemetery,  Canary avenue, Hanging Bridge, Surya Lembayung Bridge, Orchid House Exhibition, Sudjana Kassan Park, Treub laboratory, Herbarium & Seed Musesum and Tissue Cultural laboratory.

The orchid houses contain some 3,000 varieties.  Over the 180 years, it contributed to many major science, agriculture, conservation and environmental education.

the rare flower of Rafflesia Patma

At the beginning of year 2014, the rare flower of Rafflesia Patma is blooming at Bogor Botanical Garden. It was the 7th flowers since 2010.  It is one of the three national flowers in Indonesia, the other two being the white jasmine and moon orchid. It was officially recognized as a national "rare flower" (Indonesian: puspa langka)

  • Check the herb garden, palms, bamboo collection, Mexican garden, water garden and ginger collection. In fact, almost every square inch is interesting.  Try the open garden car for a sightseeing everywhere inside this park.
  • You can rent a bicycle inside and tour the park as you wish
  • There is Zoology museum inside the park. It is included at your entry ticket. This museum is very old and tired. Check its collection of the giant blue whale bones. It is very amazing big.
  • The other interesting place is the Dutch cemetery. You can see the antique massive tomb that built from the late 1800. So old!
  • Don't forget to bring an umbrella as the weather is quite unpredictable. Bogor is one of the wettest cities with highest rainfall in Java. The rainy city is other name of this town.
  • Thanks to roads throughout the Garden that allow cars to drive through. But in case you are visiting for the first time, please keep in mind: this place is really big. Be sure to bring plenty of water if you don't plan on bringing your car into the gardens.
  • Visit the famous hanging red bridge, the back view of the Bogor Presidential Palace and see the beauty of the tall & strong trees planted from 1800s
  • If you plan to go to the gardens from Jakarta, start your trip early, at about 9am at the latest. This is to ensure you miss the horrendous traffic jams.
  • There is a great cafe located on a hill with a lovely panoramic view overlooking part of the gardens.
  • Don't forget your sunscreen and  mosquito repellant.
  • Go early, bring your picnic basket and prepare to spend at least half a day in the park - it was well worth the long trip from the city.
  • The gardens are an absolute paradise but the lack of proper maintenance leaves the manmade things a bit "tired".

The Rafflesia Patma flower at Bogor Botanical Garden

0 komentar
At the beginning of year 2014, the rare flower of Rafflesia Patma is blooming at Bogor Botanical Garden West Java, Indonesia. It is the 7th flowers since 2010 and one of the three national flowers in Indonesia, the other two being the white jasmine and moon orchid. It was officially recognized as a national "rare flower".

Rafflesia Patma at Bogor Botanical Garden

There are about 30 species of Rafflesia that have been found in the world,  Rafflesia Patma is one of the 15 species of Rafflesia found in Indonesia.  Rafflesia Patma is a member of the genus Rafflesia. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on earth.  The flower of Rafflesia Patma grows to a diameter of around 38 centimeter. The buds take many months to develop and the flower lasts for just a few days. There are around 5 buds still wait to bloom.

Rafflesia Patma Blume
It lives as a parasite on the Tetrastigma vine, which grows only in primary rainforests.  Rafflesia is rare and fairly hard to locate. It is especially difficult to locate the flower in forests. There are only 3 places you could see this flower, i.e.: Bogor botanical garden, Cagar Alam Pananjung, Pangandaran  and Cagar Alam Leuweung Sancang, Garut.

Rafflesia lacks any observable leaves, stems or even roots, yet is still considered a vascular plant. Similar to fungi, individuals grow as thread-like strands of tissue completely embedded within and in intimate contact with surrounding host cells from which nutrients and water are obtained. This plant produces no leaves, stems or roots and does not have chlorophyll. It can only be seen when it is ready to reproduce. Perhaps the only part of Rafflesia that is identifiable as distinctly plant-like are the flowers; although, even these are unusual since they attain massive proportions, have a reddish-brown coloration.

Rafflesia Flower information board

It has a very strong and horrible odor of decaying flesh, earning it the nickname "corpse flower".  The stink scent attracts insects such as flies which then pollinate the rare plant. The flowers are unisexual and thus proximity of male and female flowers is vital for successful pollination. These factors make successful pollination a rare event.  The 6th flowers have been bloomed at Bogor, 5 ones were a female and other was male.
