Tacca integrifolia (White bat flower) – Tube stock


Don looked at one of the world’s weirdest plants.
The white bat plant, as it is commonly known, has strange, almost bizarre flowers resembling a bat’s black face with white ears and long whiskers.

Out of stock



The flower appears in bud as a kind of folded over white hand.
These paper-like fingers (sepals) begin to separate revealing purple pods inside with lots of white whiskers growing out of the side.
The petals of the purple pods (individual flowers) begin to recurve, exposing the inner part of the flower, and the white whiskers just get longer and longer, with the ends turning purple as it matures.
Each inflorescence lasts about a month and, by that time, the whiskers are not white at all, but totally purple – very strange!
