They are strong enough to bear a weight of 100kg – and stretch up to two metres in diameter over the surface of the water.

The lilies – named after Queen Victoria – are native to South America and found in the Amazon basin but Thailand’s tropical climate mean they can thrive, achieving super-strength stems.
