different stages of the tacca chantrieri flowers




the tacca chantrieri (black bat flower) at bukit batok nature park. the last time i saw flowers on the plants was in february this year. i think this plant likes some shade but plenty of moisture. it thrives where there is good circulation of air. the plant and its flowers seemed to wither during a period when there was no rain but they were soon revitalised when the rain came.

i came upon the same plants along the marang trail, near to the exit to harbourfront. some of them were also with flowers.

in malaysia, they call it the devil's flower.
