Flower of Eden, otherwise known as the Garden of Eden 5, was found by Nicolay Beluchenko on September 6, 2009. It was the smallest known Garden of Eden, surpassing Garden of Eden 4 (which was discovered in 2004), until December 2011, when it was surpassed by Garden of Eden 6. It is one of few known Gardens of Eden that is rotationally symmetric. If left alone by itself it will dissolve into nothing.
