The 'Bat Plant'. A bizarre but quite beautiful plant with aspidistra-like foliage and large, darkest purple, almost black flowers which resemble Batman's cape. The most intriguing features though are the bunches of long 'whiskers' protruding from the centre.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
