Anyone know where I can find some info on the innoculation process for this parasitic plant?? I understand that they've developed an easy,very successful technique in Malaysia??

I also understand that some research is going on at Kew

as well as several BG in the US. If so, who and where??

About all I can find is pix. of the fantastic flowers

Thanks vvery nuch for any pointers

When I was in Miami, Fairchild Tropical Garden's conservatory had a vine that had been inoculated with Rafflesia seeds. I do not recall its origin and the horticulturist who was responsible for it is no longer there. You could ask staff there about it.
