Black Batflower + Large pot

Tacca chantrieri

Weird, wacky and totally batty! Even when not in bloom, this tropical plant has lush foliage in a deep green that magically sprouts on the reg. But with the right amount of light and warmth, he will bloom his crazy black flowers with bat-like petals and lonnng whiskers!

We’ve potted this guy in a crisp white pot but now think it would look super cool in jet black for when it flowers. All our pots are made of high-quality ceramic with a matt finish, drainage hole and matching drip tray.

Easy care. View the full plant care guide here.

Please note: they are currently not in bloom but absolutely will flower given more time.
