Bat Plant or Devil Flower, Tacca chantrieri, is native to Southeast Asia. The purple-black flower looks somewhat like a flying bat, a sinister face or a mean cat with lots of whiskers. It likes lots of water and high humidity. Give it bright light (no direct sunshine) and water when the soil begins to dry out. Hope this helps!
