Bat Plant Beauty!
. Monday, January 15, 2018
Bat plants require warm, humid shade. They thrive in low light conditions of 40-60% shade, where trees or walls protect them from direct sun. This affinity for low light makes them quite happy indoors.
The wide, lush leaves of the bat flower plant will tatter and burn if exposed to wind, so the wall or plants that provide shade should also shelter the leaves of this beautiful plant.
Bat plants should be kept moist, but not wet. Excellent drainage is critical to ensuring your plants health. As it grows rapidly, and the temperatures warm you may need to water twice weekly - check the soil to ensure you are maintaining the balance of moist, but not wet. If you are in a humid area, the Bat plants will love it!
Bat plants need to be protected from direct sun and wind. Their soil must be moist, but not wet. They are not a "carefree" plant but in exchange for that care, they provide one of the most dazzling displays of any plants. They are evergreen, and bloom prolifically, and can be made very happy indoors all year long where they will continue to bloom their haunting blooms, which can also make long-lasting cut flowers for arrangements that will stun one and all.
