The Q&A Archives: bat plant leaves browning

Question: My Bat Plant's leaves are browning. Am I overwatering or underwater? And, to repot, what medium should I use. I live in CO and it's pretty dry.

Answer: Tacca chantrieri is The Bat Plant and browning leaves indicate overwatering. Allow the top half inch of potting soil to dry out before watering and use less water during the winter months. The Bat Plant needs fast draining soil so I'd mix together regular potting soil and cactus mix potting soil, just to ensure fast drainage.

Best wishes with your Bat Plant!
