Intro to the World’s Most Spectacular Plants

Plants are incredible.

From gigantic, 1,000 ton trees and enormous bromeliads with 9 metre tall flower spikes, to iridescent leaves that shine electric blue.

They can parasitize other plants, and trick animals in cruel, and sometimes deadly ways, taking on forms that seem almost alien.

They kill and eat animals, deploy deceptive and cunning methods sometimes involving powerful scents. Some have leaf and flower parts that even move immediately when touched!

As oxygen factories, plants directly enable all animal life on Earth, and underpin human survival through our crops and industries.

From lofty mountain peaks to dense jungles to the poles, in this film, we discover some of the world’s most spectacular plants on Earth.
