The world’s largest bromeliad is undoubtedly Puya raimondii, which stands over 30 feet tall and has one of the largest flower stalks of any plant on Earth. With over 3,000 species of bromeliads out there, this plant is the king. The photos clearly show its huge stalk that can reach over 25 feet tall and contain thousands of flowers. This magnificent plant is native to the barren highlands of the Andes in Bolivia and Peru, growing between 3200 and 4800 meters. Its remarkable flower spike only appears after 80 or more years of vegetative growth. Therefore, it means that this plant blooms only once in a century.
