Black Bat Tacca | 6″ Pot

(16 customer reviews)


The Tacca Chantrieri “Black Bat” is native to southern parts of Asia. The Bat flower has two bracts (leaves that resemble flower petals) that look like bat wings. Numerous threadlike bracteoles hang from the flowers resembling 8-10 inch long whiskers. The Tacca Chantrieri’s wing-like bracts are a deep purple. The flowers should be left on the plant and allowed to decline naturally.  They do not do well as cut flowers and decline rapidly once cut from the plant.

Bat plants are pushing out new flowers now.  This plant is considered a collector’s item and can be difficult to find in garden centers or nurseries.

    This was my 3rd plant purchase! This plant has 4 big leaves and 1 small growing leaf. I could not be happier with this nursery and their quality of plants and shipping process.

    Beautiful plant! Worked with David and he held back my order for almost a month to make sure the weather was warm enough. Kept me informed and even sent me a FREE plant for being patient on my order! Will be ordering again!

    Arrived carefully wrapped, healthy, and beautiful. I’m very excited to see it continue to grow and eventually bloom.

    Absolutely beautiful, full, big plant. Even has a flower coming out on it. I bought a white flowering Tacca from another big name, on line retailer at the same time. No comparison at all in the two plants. And for basically the same cost. Buying from Plant Hawaii is the place to buy.
