An unusual and exotic black bat shaped flower.

The tacca chantrierei, or bat plant, comes from the south eastern area of Asia and grows wild in tropical forests.

This packet of seeds will allow you to grow the most unusual houseplants.

The unique flower shape, said to replicate that of a bat, and the long black whiskers emanating from the centre give this real impact.

With optimum growing conditions the seeds will produce flowers after about 2-3 years. They prefer well drained soil, and high humidity. In the UK the bat plant is a houseplant.

Latin: Tacca chantrierei
