Tacca integrifolia White Bat Flower
Taccas are legendary for bearing one of the most bizarre flowers ever seen. The whiskers on that strange blossom are 14" long! The foliage is gorgeous, and in a tropical setting, they are prolific and spectacular.
Native to Southeast Asia, Taccas require just the right environment to thrive. They like shade, consistent warmth, humidity, good air circulation, and can be grown outdoors in zones 10-11 or indoors in a tropical environment, When they're happy, they bloom like crazy.
If you've been coveting a Tacca of your own, you know how finicky they can be. But if you can grow orchids, you can grow Tacca.
