Product Details

Highlights

Tacca chantrieri 'Black' (Black Bat Flower): A flowering tropical oddity with large, purple-black flowers that resemble bats with additional long, hanging whiskers. The foliage is attractive as well, with large, green, rippled leaves that grow in a clump.

Black Bat Flower makes an excellent showcase for a summer patio container, or can be adapted as a houseplant. It prefers moderate to high humidity. The soil should be kept consistently lightly moist, but never soggy or waterlogged. Also, bright light is required to encourage blooming, but avoid direct sun exposure. Protect from frost.
