Tacca Chantrieri
Also known as: The Black Bat Plant

One of the strangest and most amazing flowers in the plant kingdom. Native to Asian rainforests, where they grow in the loamy understory, often in deep shade. It comes from the Taccaceae family and consists of long-lived, short stemmed, rhizomatous, or tuberous herbaceous plants. Not only are the flowers and filiform bracts dark maroon, but so are the broad bracts that rise up above and behind the flowers. Each flower is about 5-8" across and has long tendrils (whiskers) that hang from it.

This variety can grow up to 2-3 feet and can successfully be grown indoors. It will thrive in bright light, but should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Should do well in the same conditions that orchids and many epiphytic ferns grow in, with ample humidity, strong airflow, and moderate light and temperatures.
Hardiness zones: 9-11 Plant will take light frost down to 3°C (37°F). Give the plants very little water through the winter and it would be ideal to provide a temperature of 15-18°C (60-65°F). As with any tropical, give the occasional mist spray through the summer. For fertilizer use, Miracle Grow mixed 1/4 teaspoon to 1 gallon of water. Repot every 2-3 years and remove decaying rhizome growth.
Germination can take from 1-9 months so be patient. Don't toss out your seed beds thinking they won't germinate!
