1st night : white flower
Firstly, a young leaf appears and beside it a bud shows itself. The signal to blossom is the distinct scent of pineapple given off by the flower.The scent attracts beetles, which are active during the night and which fly into the flower. In the morning the flower closes itself holding the beetles captive. During their imprisonment they are covered with pollen.
Victoria amazonica 2nd night: pink flower
The flower opens again and has changed colour: from creamy white to dark pink. The beetles are released and fly out taking the pollen to newly budded Victoria flowers a short distance away. The 'old' Victoria disappears under the water and forms seeds. These seeds fall onto the river bed and will germinate.
Then, a new plant was born, whose scented white flowers get blossomed and unfasten at night only. And, when the sun appears in the early mornings, the flowers changed their colors in soft pink.
Victoria amazonica is a species of flowering plant, the largest of the Nymphaeaceae family of water lilies.
The species has very large leaves, up to 3 m in diameter, that float on the water's surface on a submerged stalk, 7–8 m in length. The species was once called Victoria regia after Queen Victoria, but the name was superseded. V. amazonica is native to the shallow waters of the Amazon River basin, such as oxbow lakes and bayous. It is depicted in the Guyanese coat of arms. The flowers are white the first night they are open and become pink the second night. They are up to 40 cm in diameter, and are pollinated by beetles.
