Tacca - Nivia

Approx 5 Seeds

These tropical evergreen flowers produce large, pure white petals centred by small, sombre, drooping flowers and long whiskerlike bracts, all resembling a bat's face. These amazing blossoms appear from spring and on through summer. In the wild they grow in tropical and subtropical Asia, and in cooler climates they grow best in a shady area in a hot, humid greenhouse. When raised from seed, these thought-provoking plants, ideal for the home or conservatory, produce blooms within the same year they sprout.

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.
