It’s like a little mystery.
What plant could possible have purple stripes up top?
It’s a flower on my (little) White Bat Plant – Tacca integrifolia.
It has a larger stalk than the flower that emerged back in November.
That flower appeared at the base of the plant and I thought it had no stalk at all.
But it’s still small and I feel the plant needs to mature further to produce larger flowers.
It took a very long time for this plant to flower (17 months) and this is only the second flower to appear. By contrast, it’s almost as if my Black Bat Plant, which is much older (and larger), flowers continuously. At the moment, it has seven buds emerging and I’m sure it will look spectacular when they open.
This is my next entry in Becky’s Square in April photo challenge Tops.
