bat plant

plan your scary halloween garden for next year by planting a Tacca chantrieri or bat plant today. they do sell seeds for this terrifying flower, but it takes two to three years to grow in green house conditions (read: hot and humid) to produce a plant.
think i will try a bulb: very scary!


  1. Love this! Would be worth time and effort to grow it...
    if I had any time! xo Alice

  2. I don't think that it looks like a bat, more like an alien! It's awesome!

  3. Ooh - I saw this at Marie Selby gardens in October - it's the most extraordinary thing I've ever seen!! Am hoping to see it again when I get there next week!
