Lily Victoria Amazonica - $5000
Growing in the waters of the Amazon river basin, the Giant Water Lily Victoria Amazonica protects itself from predators by growing thorns in its leaves. As its name suggests, one of the most interesting facts about this lily is its very large leaf surface that can grow up to 46 centimeters in diameter.
The leaves of this plant are so strong that they can support up to 136 kilograms and definitely can hold the weight of an average human being.
