Dendrocnide is a genus of over 30 species of stinging plants in the nettle family and the most painful of them all, Dendrocnide moroides, is found growing in the rainforests of northern NSW and Queensland.

Tiny silica hairs on attractive heart shaped leaves deliver a painful toxin that feels like a hot acid burn and being electrocuted all at once.

Explore this amazing example of plant defence as a range of scientists share their stinging experience and what they're doing to protect the future of these surprisingly important rainforest plants.
