The Black Bat Plant, also known as the Tacca Chantrieri, is a stunning and mysterious tropical plant from South-East Asia, India, and Southern China. The Bat Plant boasts some of the most beautiful and unusual flowers you’ll ever encounter - long, deep black starburst petals are lined with tiny green hairs and hang from bracts and tassels resembling bat wings, giving this plant its name. With its lush, emerald-green leaves, the Bat Plant creates an enchanting display and adds a tropical flair to any garden or interior space. Though a bit of extra care and attention is required to get the full beauty of this tropical marvel, it’s worth the effort for those who want to bring a special and truly unique beauty to their home. In tropical and sub-tropical climates, the Black Bat Plant can be grown outdoors (such as Queensland) or brought inside to be enjoyed as a houseplant. With its lush foliage, captivatingly eerie blooms, and delightful mystery, the Black Bat Plant is definitely worth seeking out.
