BAT FLOWER/ TACCA CHANTRIERI

Common Name / Latin Name

ALUMINIUM PLANT/ PILEA CADIEREI

An exciting clump forming indoor plant that is a bit different because it bears exotic looking dark brown flowers with bracts that resemble the wings of a bat! When not in flower, the bat plant doesn’t disappoint, as its glossy, crinkly foliage takes centre stage. An amazing specimen for any plant lover looking to add some wow factor to their collection Position - They like a warm, sheltered, shady position with high humidity (mist regularly). Water - Regular watering required. However, they are dormant in the cooler months so leave them to dry out at this stage. Tips - Fertilize regularly and lightly during the growing season. Safety - Toxic if consumed by pets or humans. The best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets Difficulty - Tricky - Hard in cooler climates
