The government of Cambodia took this decision at a time when some pictures went viral in which it was seen that some girls were tampering with this plant.
This may sound a bit strange but it is true that the government of Cambodia has taken such a decision that it is being discussed. Actually a type of plant is found in Cambodia, whose flower looks like the private part of men, that is why in Cambodia it is called Penis Plant. The government there has decided that girls should not pluck its flower.
In fact, according to a report in the Daily Mail, the Cambodian government took this decision at a time when some pictures went viral in which it was seen that some girls were tampering with this plant. After this, the government has given strict instructions regarding tampering with this rare penis plant. The Cambodian government has said that people should stay away from this rare carnivorous plant.
In a statement, the Cambodian Environment Ministry requested that these rare plants be left alone. The Environment Ministry wrote in a Facebook post on May 11 that what they are doing is wrong and please do not do it again in the future. In the post made by the ministry, some pictures have also been released in which girls are seen with these plants.
Known as the Penis Plant, this plant is a very rare species, which has reached the verge of extinction. In such a situation, the government is worried that if this plant continues to be tampered with, then it may soon become extinct. This plant looks like a human penis when viewed from an angle. Some reports claim that the plant belongs to a species called Nepenthes holdenii, while it is actually closely related to a species called Nepenthes bokorensis.
