Tacca Chantrieri / Black Bat Plant 140mm


In stock

SKU: 0400160016321 Categories: , Tags: , , , ,

This one has a black/dark purple flower and dark whiskers!

This beautiful tropical plant has large glossy leaves. It has a unique flower having bat-like wings from which long drooping whiskers arise. It grows very well in Townsville in the right conditions.

For best results keep your Tacca moist but not wet during active growth. Even when the leaves wilt, they will quickly spring back with water. They enjoy a well drained loamy, nutritious soil or potting mix. Use quality fertiliser such as Troforte to keep the leaves dark green and the flowers large. Additionally the large leaves will tatter and burn if exposed to wind so a protected area is preferred.
