Tacca's are this amazing small group of plants often called the bat flower. Taccas are in the Dioscoreales family and consist of around 16 species. Only around 3 or 4 are seen in collections or ever sold, most are found in tropical Asia and Australia. Taccas normally produce paddle shaped foliage that are similar in shape to a peace-lily. A few species have birds-nest shaped leaves as well as segmented umbrella leaves similar to and Amorphophallus. The flowers are very unique from and almost black color to white these strange flowers have large petal like structures as well as what looks like long cat whiskers that hang down from either side. Yeah I know this description rough to follow. They are beautiful and weird. Rather than trying to figure what I am describing just take a look at the Tacca flowers for yourself.
